Dynamic Dames Double Feature! Author Sloan De Forest In Person!
THELMA & LOUISE / WORKING GIRL
Introduction by author Sloan De Forest, who will sign her new book, Dynamic Dames, in the lobby at 6:30 PM.
THELMA & LOUISE
1991, Park Circus/MGM, 128 min, USA/France, Dir: Ridley Scott

Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) take a fishing trip to get away from their dead-end relationships, only to end up dispatching a would-be rapist. This results in a cross-country rampage on the lam from the law, all culminating in one of the most daring, simultaneously uplifting/downbeat climaxes ever recorded on film, due in no small part to Ridley Scott’s expert direction and Callie Khouri’s gutsy script. With Harvey Keitel and a young Brad Pitt in his breakout role.


WORKING GIRL
1988, 20th Century Fox, 113 min, USA, Dir: Mike Nichols

This immensely likable look at one woman’s attempt to break through the glass ceiling features a near-unimprovable cast topped by Melanie Griffith as a secretary with big ideas, Sigourney Weaver as the boss who steals them and Harrison Ford as the man both have eyes for. A Cinderella story for the 1980s (complete with the decade’s focus on big business and even bigger hair), Nichols’ sure-handed romantic comedy picked up six Oscar nominations, including a win for Carly Simon’s original song “Let the River Run.”
