While this remarkable 1991 film is a road movie, a buddy-flick and an exciting adventure story all rolled up into one, it’s also much more than the sum of its parts. Thelma & Louise tells the tale of two beleaguered women, one the acquiescent housewife to an insensitive philanderer and the other a frustrated waitress whose boyfriend just can’t commit. The two women decide they need a break from their worse halves and take a little road trip to clear their heads. But a drunken dance-floor dalliance and an attempted rape lead to disaster, and before they know it the two women are fugitives from the law. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon are absolutely extraordinary in this beautifully shot, finely written film. The final scene is a stunner that sparked volumes of feminist debate.

Synopsis

The feminist road movie that gave vent to women's anger... and launched a thousand heated debates. Two women get on down the highway in an attempt to escape their boring, bland lives -- at least for the weekend. And when one pulls the trigger to protect her friend from a rapist, that's exactly what happens. Too scared to stop and explain the situation to police -- and sure that authorities wouldn't believe them anyway -- the avenging duo continue down the road, taking aim against misogynists, harassers, and obnoxious southern good old boys. But all roads come to an end... and when it does, Thelma and Louise have a hard, painful choice to make.

Description

Naive Thelma and jaded Louise take off for a simple weekend free of men and wind up outlaws blazing a cathartic trail across the American Southwest. Branded male-bashing, T&L parodies the entire American sexual landscape where male chauvinism, wifely docility and feminist pessimism create a tragic-comic triangle. Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress--Geena Davis, Best Actress--Susan Sarandon. Academy Awards: Best (Original) Screenplay.
