About the Movie
Somebody said get a life...so they did. In Ridley Scott's adventurous road picture, two friends --unhappy housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) and strong-willed waitress Louise (Susan Sarandon)-- leave responsibilities behind to take a weekend fishing trip in the mountains in their 1966 T-bird convertible. But...at a roadside honky-tonk, where they stop to 'blow off steam,' a man tries to rape Thelma. Louise reacts by shooting the creep with a .38, and this action turns them into dazed and confused fugitives. Now the subject of a nationwide hunt, they regain their determination and recklessness. The film concludes at the Grand Canyon with an indelible image of their final declaration of freedom.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Their adventures, while tinged with the fatalism that attends any crime spree, have the thrilling, life-affirming energy for which the best road movies are remembered.
Fresh: Right from its gratuitously gorgeous opening shot-a beckoning panorama of red-rock mesas Thelma & Louis lets you know that it's going to be well, bigger than just another road movie.
Fresh: This wincingly funny, pertinent and heartbreaking road movie means to get under your skin, and it does.
Rotten: If the only way a woman can light up the screen these days is with a .38-caliber pistol, isn't that just another form of subordination?
I'm so glad Thelma & Louise is finally on iTunes!
One of my favorite films, very happy it’s on iTunes and now can add it to my library. =)
One of my all-times favorites
This film blew me away when it was released. 22 years later, it is still fresh, funny, moving and incredibly beautiful.
