Free Summer Cinema – Thelma and Louise

July 22, 2022

UCSB Arts & Lectures
Friday night under the stars! Enjoy the free Summer Cinema at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. 
 
Housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip. However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to attack Thelma at a bar. Louise decides to flee to Mexico, and Thelma joins her. On the way, Thelma falls for sexy young thief J.D. (Brad Pitt) and the sympathetic Detective Slocumb (Harvey Keitel) tries to convince the two women to surrender before their fates are sealed. (Ridley Scott, 1991, R, 130 min.)

“Sarandon and Davis give superb, wonderfully interactive performances: funky, fierce, funny and poignant.” Newsweek
