Directed by Ridley Scott
Somebody said get a life…so they did. In Ridley Scott’s adventurous road picture, two friends–unhappy housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) and strong-willed waitress Louise (Susan Sarandon)–leave responsibilities behind to take a weekend fishing trip in the mountains in their 1966 T-bird convertible. But…at a roadside honky-tonk, where they stop to “blow off steam,” a man tries to rape Thelma. Louise reacts by shooting the creep with a .38, and this action turns them into dazed and confused fugitives. Now the subject of a nationwide hunt, they regain their determination and recklessness. The film concludes at the Grand Canyon with an indelible image of their final declaration of freedom.
