Steamy Summer Continues with Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s Bound

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Lana and Lilly Wachowski hit the ground running with their 1996 directorial debut Bound, presented as part of our brand-new Steamy Summer series!

Corky (Gina Gershon) is an ex-con working maintenance at an apartment building, where she comes across a tenant named Violet (Jennifer Tilly). The two immediately, and passionately, strike an affair as Violet’s boyfriend Caesar (Joe Pantoliano), a money launderer for the Mafia, begins to suspect foul play. When Caesar and his colleagues plan to return $2 million worth of embezzled money, Corky and Violet hatch their own plan to steal it in order to start a new life free from the danger they may find themselves deeply within.

Praised as one of the first realistic portrayals of lesbianism in mainstream film, Bound is an intimate yet explosive calling card for the trail-blazing creativity of the Wachowski sisters.

Bound screens starting Friday, June 28th.
Friday, Jun 28th – 7:30pm
Saturday, Jun 29th – 7:30pm
