Day after day, Cynthia and Evelyn act out a simple yet provocative ritual that ends with Evelyn’s punishment and pleasure. As the wealthy amateur butterfly expert Cynthia yearns for a more conventional relationship, her housekeeper Evelyn’s obsession with erotic spells quickly becomes an addiction that may push the relationship to a breaking point. Dripping with eroticism and dread, and inspired by the style of Jess Franco, The Duke of Burgundy is a darkly decadent, kinky, gothic melodrama from Peter Strickland, the award-winning writer and director of the eerie Berberian Sound Studio and Katalin Varga.

This film contains scenes depicting sexual situations and / or violence that might not be suitable for minors.
