A Little About The Plot Line:

Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis play two women on a road trip who turn into outlaws when one of them murders a man who tried to rape the other in the 1991 film “Thelma & Louise,” directed by Ridley Scott. The movie discusses issues including sisterhood, empowerment, and sexual assault.

The connection between Callie Khouri, a writer, and Pam Tillis, a singer, is similar to the bond between Thelma and Louise.

When Callie was working as a waitress at a Nashville bar, the two connected and quickly grew close. Both had creative aspirations but were constrained by the boys’ club atmosphere of their respective fields.

Thelma and Louise also show the side of society where a lady (if she manages to push herself towards freedom) that women would be happily killed if they start to pinpoint facts built only for the ladies, calling it “Social norms”.

If we look at this movie from an entertainment point of view it holds us tight and keeps up our interest since the viewer wants to know if the ladies manage to escape and live happily ever after. 

“In the future, when a woman’s crying like that, she isn’t having any fun!”

Sacrificing The Lady:

This movie gives us the bitter taste of life where a lady is happily sacrificed if it comes to her, we see it every day, a mother sacrificing her sleep because she is assumed to be the natural caregiver.

A girlfriend sacrifices her career to have a perfect married life with her partner, a lady takes up a less-paying job to settle down with her in-laws and whatnot.

However, as soon as she learns to say “No”, as soon as she says “I want this” she is shamed for being too arrogant, demanding, unloving, and selfish. 

“Somebody said get a life… so they did.”

The movie is a masterpiece of its time, a work of art, it surely made the 21st century more palatable for the feminist movements.

The feminist ideas and the representation of strong, independent female characters in “Thelma & Louise” have received high praise. It has become a symbol of culture and continues to uplift and inspire women everywhere.
