Thelma & Louise

Written by Callie Khouri

Directed by Ridley Scott

Starring Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Harvey Keitel, Brad Pitt, and Michael Masden

Thelma & Louise caught a lot of attention when it roared onto the scene because it turned the outlaw tale upside down by using women as the leads and infusing the action with an undercurrent of feminism. It even made the cover of Time magazine. Genre-wise, it’s an interesting mix. Let’s call it drama/action/adventure with the subgenres of buddy/road movie thrown in. Most unique of all, it’s an exhilarating tragedy. At the risk of offering false hope: The writer is a woman, this was her first screenplay, and they made it pretty much the way she wrote it, none of which is exactly common for a Hollywood movie.
