Bound (1996)

In the Wachowski brothers' debut film - a clever thriller and stylishly sexy neo-noir film with two leading actresses portraying a scheming pair of femme fatales. The two ultimately fell in love with each other in a titillating, Sapphic sexual liaison:

  • Violet (Jennifer Tilly), a breathy Chicago mobster's bisexual girlfriend
  • Corky (Gina Gershon), a butch lesbian and ex-con plumber

Corky met Violet while she was renovating the next-door apartment. They both plotted to abscond $2 million from Violet's boyfriend Caesar (Joe Pantoliano) while engaging in steamy girl-on-girl scenes.

In a sofa seduction scene with her bulging cleavage showing, black lingerie-wearing Violet asked: "Do I make you nervous, Corky?" and then admitted boldly: "I'm trying to seduce you" as she had Corky touch the tattoo on her breast. She then moistened Corky's finger with her mouth and placed it tantalizingly between her legs, as she confessed and proved her true feelings: "You can't believe what you'd see, but you can believe what you feel. I've been thinking about you all day" - and then begged for a kiss ("Please, kiss me") - with their mouths close to each other in full-closeup.

Their first fully-nude, explicit consummation of love-making scene in Corky's dimly-lit apartment room was intimately filmed for a mainstream film with two female leads playing lesbians.

The camera slowly circled counter-clockwise around the bed, as Violet (above) was manipulating Corky (below) with her hand and bringing her to orgasm. The camera viewed their breasts touching as they were engaged together.
