In the debut film by the Wachowskis, gangster’s moll Violet and ex-con Corky team up in business and pleasure to steal $2 million of mafia money and start anew. Fresh, leather-clad and very sexy (with intimacy scenes coordinated by lesbian sex educator Susie Bright), Bound is a defining film of the neo-noir genre and of lesbian cinema.
The screening on Tuesday 1 August will feature a pre-recorded intro by film critic Xuanlin Tham.
