Thelma and Louise
There's this great movie, Thelma and Louise, that really blew my mind and that I've been wanting to review for such a long time! It's the story of two friends, Thelma, a young married woman who lives with a man who treats her badly, and Louise, a very self-asserted woman. One day, as Louise phones Thelma and sees in what kind of mess she is, they impulsively decide they need to take a break for their lives and leave for the weekend. They begin a trip in the country, and stop at night at a bar, Thelma drinks so much that she dances like she's never danced before and a man keeps flirting with her. As he takes her out on the parking lot, he tries to rape her, but Louise arrives just in time to help her friend out, and kills the man. Their runaway thus begins, and leads to many both funny and stressful adventures. I can't tell you anything more about it, otherwise I'll spoil it all for you. But I really recommend you to see it! I think this movie is of those that everyone likes, because there are so many aspects to it, that it's difficult not be taken by the story. It is a very feminist movie, with the story of an everlasting friendship, rounded up by adventurous and kind of outlawish events.
Here's the movie trailer, in case you're still not convinced!
Have a great day, and keep your mind sharp!
