About the film
THELMA AND LOUISE
USA 1994 129 minutes R
Directed by Ridley Scott
Starring Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon and Harvey Keitel
Seriously though, this 1991 drama may be remembered for its much-parodied ending, but it was chillingly prescient, frankly confronting the ways in which toxic masculinity encourages violence (sexual and otherwise) against women and the silencing of victims. Powered by remarkable performances by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon and an Oscar-winning script by Callie Khouri, THELMA AND LOUISE is a timeless film that will never run out of gas.
Content advisory: Please be advised that this film includes a scene of and several conversations about sexual assault and rape.
We Really Like Her! is a screening series and podcast about women in film hosted by Emily Gagne and Danita Steinberg.
