Venus in Fur is a 2013 French film (subtitled). The reviews say things like “caustically brilliant” and “sexually charged.” The trailer may excite you in more ways than one. Personally I like the bit where she calls the book sexist S&M porn and hurls it into the fire.
For once, you don’t have to read anything before the meeting. But if you do want background, the film is based on the Broadway play by David Ives, which is based on the classic 1870 novella by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, who gave his name to masochism.
