When talking about Ridley Scott nobody ever mentions this diamond. It is an incredible movie! With all the sexist discussions in the entertainment industry lately, this one, even though it was released 25 years ago, seems more relevant than ever. It stands as one of the best examples for strong female protagonists in movies. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are great in their roles and are really believable during their transformation from housewives to badass fugitives.
Basically, the story takes its spirit from breaking out of gender roles and standing up for your right. However, first and foremost it’s a road trip/heist movie and one of the best I have ever seen. So if you like these kind of movies and are interested in strong female characters, you should not miss it! Btw. For all my female readers, there is a young Brad Pitt in a cowboy hat + his abs 😉
