'THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY' Makes Its BD/DVD Debut September 29th from Shout! Factory

Critically-Acclaimed Fantasia Makes Its BD/DVD
Debut September 29th from Shout! Factory

Dripping with sumptuously surreal imagery, the critically acclaimed The Duke of Burgundy is a deliciously twisted tale of erotic obsession. Written and directed by Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio), this romantically lush yet darkly humorous film will make its Blu-ray and DVD debut September 29th from Shout! Factory, in partnership with Sundance Selects. A mesmerizing ode to Giallo and European art house cinema, The Duke of Burgundy features a lush chamber pop score by Cat’s Eyes and comes loaded with bonus features, including an interview with director Peter Strickland, audio commentary track with Peter Strickland, deleted scenes, a Cat’s Eyes music video, Peter Strickland’s short film Conduct Phase and more!

In a crumbling European estate, butterfly researcher Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen, Borgen, After The Wedding) and her lover Evelyn (Chiara D’Anna, Berberian Sound Studio) repeatedly enact a sadomasochistic role-playing game, with Cynthia as the stern mistress and Evelyn her subservient slave. But as the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur, and Cynthia grows increasingly uneasy with Evelyn’s insatiable appetite for punishment, their relationship is pushed to the limit.

The Duke of Burgundy Bonus Features:
· Interview with director Peter Strickland
· Audio Commentary track with director Peter Strickland
· Deleted Scenes
