It’s Episode 102 of Flixwatcher podcast. Kelly and Sam from Curzon Cinema Podcast to review Sam’s choice Thelma and Louise.

Thelma and Louise is the 1991 Ridley Scott directed film written by Callie Khouri (Nashville) which won its only Oscar for Original Screenplay. It stars Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon in the title roles and a very famous and naked first appearance of Brad Pitt. A girls weekend away escalates quickly into a manhunt after Louise shoots a man who attempts to rape Thelma, they plan an escape to Mexico with Harvey Keitel’s potentially sympathetic police officer on their tail.

Scores

Thelma and Louise is a feminist classic before making feminist classics was a thing, it’s ending is so ingrained in popular and film culture and it’s impossible not feel and love the two title characters. It has dated a little but that doesn’t detract from the films overall themes of friendship. Overall Thelma and Louise scores a very respectable 4.25.
