Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #26. Peter Strickland’s The Duke of Burgundy

The Duke of Burgundy

Director: Peter Strickland
Writer: Peter Strickland
Producer: Andy Starke
U.S. Distributor: IFC Films
Cast: Chiara D’Anna, Sidse Babett Knudson, Fatma Mohamed

One of the best titles from 2012 happened to be Peter Strickland’s giallo homage, Berberian Sound Studio starring Toby Jones, which received a limited stateside release this past summer. The British filmmaker, whose directorial debut was the superb 2009 Romanian set Katalin Varga is thankfully already at work on his latest, a relationship based period piece which sees him reuniting with Italian actress Chiara D’Anna. Details are limited, but the first one-sheet debuted quite recently after the film was announced to be in post-production.

Gist: A woman who studies butterflies and moths tests the limits of her relationship with her lover.

Release Date: While Varga premiered in Berlin, Studio got its release at Edinburgh, then Locarno. If it’s ready in time, we’re thinking it’s about time for Strickland to make an appearance at Cannes, while Locarno and or Venice seem likely venues as well.
