Susan Sarandon And Geena Davis Celebrating 20th Anniversary Of 'Thelma And Louise'

The Oscar-winning actresses Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are set to appear in Toronto to celebrate this month's 20th anniversary of their landmark film 'Thelma and Louise'.

They are scheduled to sit down at Roy Thomson Hall tonight to talk about the influence of the 1991 heroine road trip drama, which won an Oscar for best screenplay.

Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon star in the film as two working-class friends who head out for a weekend getaway that sees them becoming accidental outlaws.

With its feminist overtones and original plot, the film became an iconic symbol of women's rights.

It was also a breakthrough film for Brad Pitt, who played a strapping paroled robber who befriends the girls on their journey.

Ridley Scott co-produced and directed the film, which earned both Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon Oscar nominations for their roles.
