Film Series: Thelma and Louise

1991. USA. Dir: Ridley Scott. With Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis. 130 min.


A duo of kickass women murder an unapologetic rapist, jump-starting a cross-country run from the law in which they smash the patriarchy at every pit stop. Monumental in its radical femininity, the film continually exalts its protagonists’ righteous fury and even turns an objectifying gaze on a gloriously shirtless Brad Pitt. Speaker: author Becky Aikman.
