Thelma & Louise is a feminist manifesto writ large on the big screen, a smart and funny gender reversal of the standard Hollywood buddy formula, a road movie extraordinaire, with characters who became instant cultural icons. No matter how you define it, Ridley Scott's 1991 box-office hit pinched a nerve and made the cover of national news magazines for tweaking gender politics like no movie before or since. Callie Khouri's screenplay overhauls the buddy formula with its story about two best friends (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) who embark on a liberating adventure that turns into an interstate police chase after a traumatic incident makes both women into fugitives; they are en route to a destiny they could never have imagined. The perfect casting of Sarandon and Davis makes Thelma & Louise a movie for the ages and Brad Pitt became an overnight star after his appearance as the con-artist cowboy who gives Davis a memorable (but costly) night in a roadside motel. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

What really makes this film is not only it's exciting plot and chase, but the way in which it has an acute combination of every aspect you need to make a film truly brilliant: The two main characters are delightful-it really is rare to relate to characters the way in which I did to Thelma and Louise, the issues dealt with are controversial, evocative and very involving, it's exciting, it's beautiful and it's devastatingly funny. It would be an insult to dismiss this as a "chick-flick" it has a very deep meaning and a rare brilliance that could not possibly keep it confined to this tacky categorisation. It is widely accessible and I'm confident both sexes would get a lot out of it. However, I must admit, girls, you will love it!
This is a film about independence, power and life, and ultimately about friendship.
It comes highly recommended-don't miss it!
There is a feminist slant to the film; most of the men (including a gorgeous young Brad Pitt) are negative, emotionally and morally weak characters. The two main character's development is fascinating; Thelma loses her naivety and Louise learns to accept help. Thelma and Louise, despite their increasingly bad behaviour, remain strong, good characters, elicitng support and affection from the audience.
The film's ending is legendary. It immortalises these two characters and their plight, it is incredibly tragic and after watching this film for the first time, I cried for a good half an hour afterwards because it was just so sad. Yet there is also something positive and life-affirming in the women's retention of their freedom and cementing of their friendship.
Thelma and Louise is now a cult film. The acting is honest and impressive. The landscape is beautiful and the music enhances the film's atmosphere. The Oscar winning screenplay is incredible, and Ridley Scott's direction complements it perfectly. The DVD extras include audio commentaries by the director, writer and stars; the alternate endings provide a different perspective of the famous climax. There are a wealth of extras on this DVD, but they are by no means the selling point of the movie: it stands alone as a cult classic; "provocative, poignant and a triumph of moviemaking" could not be more true!
Well , in was roundabout way yes..The Hi def transfer has a crisp quality and does bring out detail that many earlier incarnations on video and DVD didn't pick up so well. If anybody had the 1990's letterbox video that was 1st released those might recall a fuzziness about Louise's car when it leaves her home to pick up Thelma , but the brilliant detail in many of the car interior scenes are far superior to anything ever seen until now. The problem with this version is the colour as Ridley Scott paints with light never for-seeing "Hi Def" when this was being shot over 20 years before. With that in mind it meant he could use poetic licence with framing and adjusting hues when filming the wonderful Arizonian landscape and the rich blue sky's..its a shame because much of the vibrancy has been lost and the use of tinted filters to give "effect" or "atmosphere" are clearly visible on many of the wide shots. But that's not to say that it makes the film look poor or up to much to enjoy..its the best version there will probably be and if you have a good Blu-ray player like mine that is able to play in Hi-Def "and" at 24 FPS (frames per second) , the motion is superb with the smoothest of non picture grain or nasty "duel-layering" totally removed from what most have seen until now. Skin tones are clear , the tiny blood speckles can clearly be seen on Louise's face when she is in the bathroom waiting for Thelma , and though the scenes in "Monument Vally" look cold and muted in the early morning light , the final Grand Canyon shots look stunning and every dust cloud has every detail and swirl.Read more ›
From the way the title sequence opens with it’s breath-taking landscape and musical score which draws you in, you know this is something above the norm. The title actually foreshadows the film itself, stating off grey and promising, blossoming in the middle and dark and brooding at the end. If the film has a flaw, it’s in the fact that almost all the men are negative, self obsessed types but in some ways that helps to highlight the changes we see in the women and despite their escalating criminal behaviour they remain ‘good at heart’ characters, keeping the support and attention of the audience.
The 15 age rating is appropriate due to swearing and some scenes of graphic, physical and ‘adventure’ style violence, whilst the few sex scenes contain mild nudity. It’s a tale of self discovery, self fulfilment and friendship, deserving of a ***** and with a great, diverse soundtrack, it is highly recommended.
