In creating the characters Thelma and Louise for this hugely entertaining and controversial road movie, Oscar-winning scriptwriter Callie Khouri put women in the driving seat for the first time. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon star as the two friends whose weekend spree to escape the boredom of their small-town routines is curtailed when Louise (Sarandon) kills a man who's trying to rape Thelma (Davis). They flee, and thus begins their voyage of self-discovery. Ridley Scott's film sparked a row at the time over whether the sight of gals with guns was a symbol of liberated equality or depressing defeminisation. Whatever your viewpoint, films have a duty to provoke as well as entertain, and it's impossible to watch the plight of Thelma and Louise without feeling indignation.
Two world-weary friends flee their dull dead end lives for a weekend road trip. However, when they kill a would-be rapist in self-defence, they make a fateful decision to run from the law, sparking a chain of events destined to end in tragedy. Ridley Scott's drama, starring Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen and Brad Pitt.
