Last week, Geena Davis revealed to the Associated Press that she and Susan Sarandon, her Thelma and Louise co-star, are figuring out how to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary next year. Davis noted that she hoped to remind people "that it is possible to make a movie that's a cultural landmark starring women." In fact, they are even considering some kind of live show or tour. "There's still so much affection for the movie and we loved it," said Davis, who remains friends with Sarandon. "It seems like there should be some girl power celebrating going on."
The Oscar-winning 1991 road trip buddy film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Callie Khouri was groundbreaking. Not only did its two empowered female characters strike a worldwide nerve, the movie also helped set the bar higher for female roles. And additionally, the masterpiece helped launch the career of one of the film's supporting actors--a dude named Brad Pitt.
