Director/Writer Lana Wachowski in attendance

Three years before they delivered THE MATRIX (and redefined action movies forever), the Wachowski siblings offered up a sensual, razor-sharp film noir throwback as their debut feature. Bolstered by career-best performances from Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon, and Joe Pantoliano, Bound centers on two women scheming to rip off a dangerous gangster by stealing $2 million from his money launderer, whose unexpected reaction to being a scapegoat threatens to derail the plan. With a groundbreaking lesbian love story at its driving force, the filmmakers bring copious amounts of wit, style, brains, sexiness, and a refreshingly progressive attitude to this landmark crime drama.
