Watch: ‘The Duke of Burgundy’ Trailer Teases Artful S&M

Watch: 'The Duke of Burgundy' Trailer Teases Artful S&M

A new trailer for the real S&M film of 2015 has arrived.
Peter Strickland’s “The Duke of Burgundy” follows the story of Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen), who makes her living as a lepidopterist, specializing in the study of butterflies and moths, and her lover Evelyn (Chiara D’Anna), who wants nothing more than to be commanded and punished in their bedroom.
“This is all I ever dreamed about, to be used by you,” Evelyn coos in this sexy trailer, which benefits more from the eerie, plinky-plunk of a harpsichord than that other trailer does with a re-mix of an old Beyoncé tune.

“The Duke of Burgundy” has made its rounds on the festival circuit this year, and will be released by IFC Films on January 23. Check out the trailer below:
