Modesto Film – Thelma & Louise w Film Discussion

Modesto Film Society Cinema Club presents THELMA AND LOUISE

The Modesto Film Society’s Cinema Club selection for March is 1991’s THELMA AND LOUSE, the first “outlaw buddy” movie in which the outlaw buddies were female, on Tuesday, March 5, 7 p.m. at Modesto’s historic State Theatre.

Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Harvey Keitel and Brad Pitt in a breakthrough role, the film generated significant controversy when released, despite Director Scott’s denial that the film was intended to be a feminist manifesto.

Both Sarandon and Davis were nominated for Best Actress Oscars. The film also received nominations for Best Director, photography, editing and writing, but only Callie Khouri received the Academy Award for Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.

A post film discussion will be led by MJC Professor of History Eva Mo and her husband Mark, an Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at CSUS. Tickets are $8 for non Modesto Film Society Club members.

More information may be obtained by calling The State Theatre at 527-4697, or visiting the theatre’s web site:
