This classic fits perfectly as the opening of our series “Strong Women”. Women were already of crucial importance in the development of the project: THELMA & LOUISE was produced by Mimi Polk Gittin, who hired Ridley Scott to direct the film and set up the financing. Today, thirty years later, directing would probably be offered to a woman. Callie Khouri’s screenplay won an Oscar.

Louise (Susan Sarandon) prevents the rape of her friend Thelma (Geena Davis). In the process she shoots the attacker. The carefree weekend trip of the different girlfriends turns into a flight from the police. The girlish Thelma has to rise above herself and Louise has to face up to her past. Both end their escape from themselves and decide autonomously about life and death.

The most unusual film by the English star director Ridley Scott.
