We are so excited to welcome you back to The Brattle!
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.
