Summary
In 1991, Thelma & Louise, the story of two outlaw women on the run from their disenchanted lives, was a revelation. The film, in which women were, in every sense, behind the wheel, instantly become a classic, and continues to electrify audiences as a cultural statement of defiance. But at the time its creation was a long shot. Aikman tells the story of this feminist sensation from an idea in the head of Callie Khouri, a vision: two women on a crime spree, fleeing their dull and tedious lives-- lives like hers-- in search of a freedom they had never before been able to realize
