Bound By Flesh


Presented by IFC Films | United States | Jun 27th, 2014 | 90 MINS | NR

“A masterful movie, certain to touch the hearts of all audiences” (The Hollywood Reporter), this remarkable documentary 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.
