FEAST Film – Thelma & Louise – Sat 5th March

To coincide with International Women’s Day, FEAST Film Nights in association with The Portico Gallery presents…. Thelma & Louise (PG)

This iconic feminist road movie. 25 years on, the film still stands alone in this genre, something that is both a credit to the film itself – and also depressing in that so few similar movies were made in its wake.

“Meek” housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip. However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma at a bar. Louise decides to flee to Mexico, and Thelma joins her. On the way, Thelma falls for sexy young thief J.D. (Brad Pitt) and the sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender before their fates are sealed.
