LILLY WACHOWSKI, LANA WACHOWSKI
Presented by Screen Queen:
Intense, erotic crime thriller with Gina Gershon as an ex-con who, after having a sexual liaison with neighbor Jennifer Tilly, joins forces with her to dupe gangster boyfriend Joe Pantoliano out of $2 million of laundered loot.
“A lesbian relationship that once seemed like the hook for a showy modern noir now seems like the inverse—a showy noir that traffics in a substantive, empowering (and okay, a little steamy) look at two women trying to negotiate a man’s world. It ticks off all the neo-noir boxes . . . while quietly subverting expectations of who Tilly and Gershon are and where the story will lead them.” -AV Club
