EPIX presents Oscar-winning teaming of Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis
Other projects have tried to capture the same lightning, but 30 years later, there’s still nothing else like “Thelma & Louise.” EPIX presents the legendary, Ridley Scott-directed female-buddy movie Thursday, Aug. 12, and Friday, Aug. 13, and it’s also streaming on Hulu and Paramount+ … and at a recent event to celebrate the picture’s three-decade anniversary, stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis lamented that though they foresaw a breakthrough for movies and series powered by women, that phenomenon largely hasn’t happened.
Still, the actresses’ shared legacy endures as they play friends who break away from depressing domestic situations and run into trouble on the road. What ultimately results is one of the most iconic scenes in motion-picture history, defining why there never could be a sequel (though one allegedly was proposed). The Oscar-winning Callie Khouri script also did a lot for Brad Pitt, as someone who has much to do with the women’s hard-driving flight from the law.
