The Films

Thelma & Louise

Ridley Scott | US | 130

With Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Harvey Keitel, Brad Pitt. In this groundbreaking, stirring drama, two close friends’ lives are forever changed after one of them is sexually assaulted in public and they decide to take matters into their own hands. Starring Davis as Thelma and Sarandon as Louise, and featuring an Oscar-winning screenplay by Callie Khouri, Thelma & Louise struck a nerve with audiences and made an enduring impact in Hollywood as the cornerstone film about outlaw women in search of freedom from a violent, male-dominated society. Rated: R

Desperately Seeking Susan

Susan Seidelman | US | 104

With Rosanna Arquette, Madonna, Aidan Quinn. A desperate New Jersey housewife (Arquette) is rescued from terminal boredom when a bump on the head and a case of amnesia cause her to be mistaken for a Lower East Side free spirit (Madonna). Riffing gleefully on Jacques Rivette’s Celine and Julie Go Boating, Seidelman’s screwball romp through the fashionable scenes of 1980s downtown Manhattan features a soundtrack that rocks Madonna’s club anthem “Into the Groove” alongside Iggy Pop, Run-D.M.C., and classic Motown. Rated: PG-13
