Somebody said get a life... so they did.

Two best friends set out on an adventure, but it soon turns around to a terrifying escape from being hunted by the police, as these two women escape for the crimes they committed.

A landmark of feminist cinema, Callie Khouri’s film is an uncompromising look into the contemporary female experience, picking apart chauvinist male attitudes to aspire for a better tomorrow. It remains as relevant as ever.

Despite the extremes of the plot, Thelma & Louise is not really a romanticization of murder, crime, or taking one's own life when faced with dire consequences. Instead, what it does romanticize is the idea of doing whatever you want whenever you want and reclaiming your power after a lifetime of having little. The lasting appeal isn't the violence — it's playing witness to two women who've granted themselves the authority to have unhinged misadventures. They're mad as hell, and they're not going to take it anymore.

Thelma & Louise taught us to challenge expectations and rebel against the status quo.

Join us as you see Alphabetti like never before…. A cinema! Whaaaat!
