Bound

The Late Show!

20th Anniversary!

Friday, September 16 & Saturday, September 17

(1996) dir The Wachowskis w/Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon, Joe Pantaliano [108 min; 35mm]
The Wachowskis’ first outing as directors, BOUND is a potboiler of a lesbian romance that flip-flops and scrambles up neo-noir themes and gender norms into an incredibly entertaining and sexy thriller. Tough, ex-con plumber Corky (Gershon) meets and immediately sparks an attraction with sultry gangster’s moll Violet (Tilly). The pair plot to steal $2 million in mob money from Violet’s boyfriend Caesar (Pantaliano) and hang him out to dry.

Co-presented with Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival. Wicked Queer Film Festival returns March 30th to April 9th, 2017.

“By working in the noir genre, the Wachowskis completely upend expectations by making their femmes fatale merely femmes, teasing the audience with their black-leather allure and criminal designs only to have them searching, in earnest, for the exit door.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club

“[The Wachowskis] are to be applauded for a film that is also nearly as stylishly funny as it is sexy and fast-paced.” – Barry Walters, SF Examiner
