We are delighted that writer, historian and critic Pamela Hutchinson will introduce this screening of director Ridley Scott's landmark female-driven film to mark its 30th anniversary.
FROM RIDLEY SCOTT, DIRECTOR OF BLADE RUNNER, ALIEN, GLADIATOR AND THE NEW HOUSE OF GUCCI....
"Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis star as female outlaws trapped in a patriarchal world in a film that remains a biting outlier"- The Guardian.
Thelma and Louise - a bored housewife and a straight-laced waitress at a coffee shop - are best friends who are sick of what they've settled for. Deciding to escape the tedium of their everyday lives, the pair sneak off in Louise’s '66 T-bird convertible for a three-day fishing trip with no husbands, no boyfriends and no problems. But things don’t go quite according to plan when an encounter with a drunken, foul-mouthed, would-be rapist transforms their quiet getaway into a cross-country escape that will change their lives forever.
