THELMA & LOUISE
GEM, Sunday, 8.40pm, M ( 1991)
Ridley Scott’s feminist road movie par excellence follows the exhilarating weekend getaway of two small- town gals who find themselves on the run from the law after a tragic stop- off. Finding boy toy Brad Pitt and numerous other amusements along the way, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis ( pictured, right, with Sarandon) embrace the celebration of freedom with such conviction that you find yourself willing their journey to reach greater heights – and the denouement delivers. The ’ 90s started here.
