Thelma & Louise
Presented by Screen Queen:
Two best friends set out on an adventure, but it soon turns around to a terrifying escape from being hunted by the police, as these two girls escape for the crimes they committed.
“In the case of this movie, authorship must be extended to Callie Khourie, who not only wrote the screenplay, but also co-produced the film along Scott. Khourie’s Thelma & Louise cleverly combines some traditionally male-driven American genres such as the western, the road movie and the “buddy film.” But Thelma & Louise centers the story on two women, played by Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, who immortalize their title characters.” – Brooklyn
“It’s the iconography of Thelma & Louise and its enduring appeal for succeeding generations of feminists in particular that mark it as a notable staging post in the development of female action heroines… But looking back—beyond mere genre placeholding—at the text itself, one can see how Khouri’s Thelma & Louise broke its own mold more ingeniously, by incorporating resonant feminist themes of reclamation and liberation into a widely recognizable and accessible Hollywood narrative.” – Julien Allen, Reverse Shot
