Geena Davis at TIFF Bell Lightbox
Nominated for six OscarsSir Ridley Scott's Thelma & Louise is known as one of the greatest Feminist Films of our time. Its story follows two Women on-the-run after murdering a Rapist and is also known as Mega-star Brad Pitt's first Breakout Role in Hollywood.

Originally released in 1991, Thelma & Louise is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in Toronto with an exclusive Screening earlier this evening for TIFF Members and a Gala tomorrow at Roy Thomson Hall. Both Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, who in 1992 were nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars, flew into Toronto for the festivities and do they ever look amazing!

Susan Sarandon
Davis, who filmed The Fly in Toronto back in 1986, made a rare visit to the City after having been busy in recent years lending her name to charitable causes such as fighting Gender Discrimination. Sarandon however has had reason to visit with some of her recent work including Solitary Man and Middle of Nowhere screening in recent years at TIFF.

Although Davis was Camera-shy in declining to be photographed with Fans, Sarandon obliged to Fan requests for Photos; both were generous with Autographs.  Following a quick introduction to this evening's Screening, the Duo headed to Luma in the TIFF Bell Lightbox for Dinner as their Driver stood on-call.
