Bound by Flesh

Bound by Flesh Release Date: June 27, 2014

The movie Bound By Flesh is a big screen  documentary that tells the amazing story of Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins who rose to superstardom at the beginning of the 20th century as sideshow attractions, performing alongside the likes of Bob Hope and Charlie Chaplin.

Ruthlessly exploited by their managers, the sisters ultimately sued for their freedom – which they won at a terrible cost.

A gripping, roller-coaster tale of showbiz tragedy, Bound By Flesh puts a touchingly human face on two outsiders who went from the lowest rungs of society to the big time and back again.

Incidentally, the director of Bound By Flesh, Leslie Zemeckis, is the wife of Oscar winning director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back To The Future, Cast Away).
