A groundbreaking work of LGBTQ cinema, Bound stars Gina Gershon (Showgirls) as Corky, a tough-as-nails ex-con, and Jennifer Tilly (Bullets Over Broadway) as her lover Violet. A chance encounter in an elevator ignites a torrid affair between the two women, who soon plot to steal $2 million in laundered mob money and pin the blame on Violet’s mafioso boyfriend, Ceasar (Joe Pantoliano, The Sopranos). A stylish neo-noir, fusing classic tropes with hyper-stylized camera work and color design, Bound is a crackling retro-thriller that never strays too far from its noir roots and would become the first in a line of visually dazzling films from The Wachowskis, the writing and directing team behind the Matrix trilogy.

Bound features a stellar supporting cast that includes Christopher Meloni (TV’s Law & Order: SVU), Richard C. Sarafian (director of the cult film Vanishing Point) and John P. Ryan (Runaway Train) with exquisite photography by Bill Pope (Baby Driver) and razor-sharp editing by Academy Award winner® Zach Staenberg (Best Film Editing, The Matrix, 2000).
