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. 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. The film is rated R for strong sexuality, violence, & laguage. With a runtime of 1hr and 49min.
The Grand Rapids Feminist Film Festival is a two day free celebration dedicated to elevating voices and showcasing talent from historically underrepresented groups in mainstream media. Now in its fifth year, the festival has been a staple in the Grand Rapids community, bringing in films made by women, non-binary folks, and marginalized groups, and educating our community for free with top-notch panels and speakers. An inclusive and accessible safe space for the social justice community across Michigan. Their big event is coming up this fall: October 12th-13th here in Grand Rapids. More information can be found on their website & social media pages. GRFFF is a not-for-profit organization run entirely by volunteers and is made possible through community partnerships and sponsors.
