Thelma & Louise ★★★★

"Thelma and Louise" is a film of rare cultural resonance, to be sure. Just a relevant today as it was in 1991. Yet while undoubtedly provocative, this movie is also a lot of fun.

"Thelma and Louise" made a huge splash when it was released and has since become a part of the pop culture lexicon. In it, a mistreated housewife and harried waitress stumble into an out-of-control - but totally liberating - crime spree. As bold and relevant as ever, it remains a vastly entertaining must-see.

Director Ridley Scott lends this road movie epic scope, seeking out the beauty in open spaces.

Both leads - Geena Davis as Thelma and Susan Sarandon as Louise - give fine performances. Thelma and Louise become fully realized human beings who share a powerful and authentic friendship. Their transformation into two outlaws is also made entirely believable by the actresses.

One Oscar win - Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen - Callie Khouri

Five other Oscar Nominations - Best Actress in a Leading Role - Geena Davis , Best Actress in a Leading Role - Susan Sarandon, Best Director - Ridley Scott, Best Cinematography & Best Film Editing.
