Thelma and Louise

Coastal Carolina University Department of English presents a screening of Thelma and Louise November 6 at 5 p.m. in the Coastal Theater Lib Jackson Student Union. In Ridley Scott’s 1991 Academy Award-winning road film, Thelma (Greena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) are waitresses in Arkansas who set out in a weekend road trip to a fishing cabin. On the way, they encounter a string of characters and events, making decisions that empower them yet involve criminal activity. Following the screening, CCU assistant professor Christian Smith and associate professor Anna Oldfield will lead a discussion on the genres of “road movie” and “buddy movie” in American film history and how this work fits and expands both genres. Free.
