    Thelma and Louise

    What's it About

    Looking forward to a fun weekend free of their respective men folk, hard-working waitress Louise (Sarandon) and gullible housewife Thelma (Davis) head out of town on what promises to be a rip-roaring camping trip. But after an ugly, life-changing incident at a roadhouse bar, the two gal pals become fugitives from the law, with only themselves to rely on.

    Why we love it

    Penned by Oscar winner Callie Khouri, Scott's road movie put a thrilling new spin on a well-worn genre, by injecting a refreshing current of working-class feminism into the multiplex mainstream. Sarandon and Davis have a soulful, wholly credible rapport, and both Harvey Keitel, as a sympathetic cop, and Michael Madsen are superb in support roles. Watch for Brad Pitt, too, in his film debut as a charming cowboy thief. For good reason, the film's dead-end at the Grand Canyon created a public furor: it's as radical an image of true sisterhood as you'll ever see.
