Thelma & Louise

“I don’t ever remember feeling this awake…”

Meek housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip. However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma at a bar. Louise decides to flee to Mexico, and Thelma joins her. On the way, Thelma falls for sexy young thief J.D. (Brad Pitt) and the sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender before their fates are sealed.

This wincingly funny, pertinent and heartbreaking road movie means to get under your skin, and it does.” (Rolling Stone)

Still compelling and inspiring after all these years.” (Empire Magazine)

Along the way, both women rediscover the strength of their friendship and surprising aspects of their personalities and self-strengths in the trying times.
