When the discontented Violet meets alluring excon Corky, a clandestine affair emerges between the two women – unbeknownst to Violet’s violent Mafioso boyfriend Caesar. When the two hatch a plan to steal $2 million of mafia money and pin the blame on Caesar, they find themselves embroiled in a dark world of vice and retribution. The legendary first feature from the Wachowski sisters is as enthralling today as ever, and is noteworthy for employing bisexual, sex positive feminist Susie Bright to choreograph the film’s sex scenes.
“Bound is one of those movies that works you up, wrings you out and leaves you gasping. It’s pure cinema.” Roger Ebert
“Bound is far more subversive than the boy’s night out it could so easily have been, a film that plays around with conventions of both gender and genre, putting two women at the heart of a crime picture and letting them succeed on their own terms.” James Oliver, Arrow Films
