Ridley Scott directs this drama starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. Waitress Louise (Sarandon) persuades her friend Thelma (Davis) to escape her sexist husband and join her on a road trip.
When they stop off at a country bar, Louise ends up saving Thelma from an attempted rape – shooting and killing the rapist in the process – and the women consequently find themselves forced to go on the run. Along the way their money is stolen by a handsome cowboy (Brad Pitt) and they begin holding-up convenience stores to get by, feeling strangely liberated by their new-found assertiveness.
The cast also includes Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen and Christopher McDonald.
