Movie poster image for THELMA & LOUISE


Academy Award winner for Best Screenplay, THELMA AND LOUISE follows meek housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) and independent waitress Louise (Susan Sarandon) on a short fishing trip that quickly becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who attempts to rape Thelma at a bar. Ending with one of the most iconic moments in cinematic history, the two friends escape from the consequences of patriarchal society the only way they know how, in a film that broke down the walls of the traditional female buddy-comedy, and most definitely passes the Bechdel Test.
