Thelma and Louise International Women's Day Screening

Film, Drama
Thelma and Louise

"Let's not get caught"

All around the world, women's right are under attack. In Australia, domestic violence is at epidemic proportions. It's never a bad idea to bolster your spirits and watch Thelma & Louise, although International Women's Day makes for perfect timing.

The 1991 story of two lovable Arkansas women on the run (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) remains inspirational and funny, a parable for our times.

It won a well deserved Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Callie Khouri. It's also notable for introducing to the screen a promising young man caled Brad Pitt, and for being the other great girlpower movie (after Alien) on the long, uneven resume of director Ridley Scott.

Tickets are just $15 and include a free wine or beer, and $2 from each ticket will go to the Luke Batty Foundation, which raises community awareness and lobbies the government on preventing family violence.
