A seductive neo-noir and cult classic centring on lesbian desire in dangerous circumstances.
Dirs Lilly and Lana Wachowski
With Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon, Joe Pantoliano
The Wachowskis’ debut feature stars Jennifer Tilly as Violet, a gangster’s moll to Joe Pantoliano’s Caesar. Their dysfunctional dynamic is interrupted by lesbian ex-con Corky (Gershon), whose seduction of Violet comes with a plan to steal money from the mob. This violent neo-noir puts a rare focus on two women who not only unapologetically enjoy sex, but enjoy it with each other.
