*Best Actress for Bonnie Loren
Twenty-five years ago, Naomi Holbroke (Bonnie Loren) abandoned her acting career to get married to a high-ranking British official. Now she's convinced she made the wrong decision, and she's determined to make up for it by landing the role of a lifetime. She abandons her marriage to salvage her stalled-out acting career, and becomes ensnared in a massive terrorist plot after stealing a taxi and discovering the body of a murdered film director.

"Very much a screwball comedy of the kind you think of when you think of a Lucille Ball or Goldie Hawn, Tied to a Chair is a film where no matter how often the heroine seems to be making a mess of things, she manages to make everything turn out alright in the end, and remain a loveable clutz throughout." - Jack Goodstein; blogcritics.org
Jeffrey Lyons said: "...a very ambitious movie...Bonnie Loren perfectly evoked the near-desperation of a struggling actress who realizes her chance at stardom is fleeting."
"Look out Meryl Streep, there's an actress who is just as amazing as you are...Bonnie Loren is the X-factor that really makes this film work...A diamond has been found ...with the film's leading lady, Bonnie Loren, who shines very brightly in this film." Del Ray Beach Film Festival
