Eleutheromania — an intense longing or yearning for freedom — is thought to have its origins in ancient Greek mythology. Eleutherios (meaning liberator) is an epithet attributed to Dionysus, the god of wine and excess, who could liberate men from their inhibitions. ~ Untranslatable Expressions

“What was so striking was the intense reaction to the film. Thelma and Louise end up driving off a cliff, and still viewers felt exhilarated by their story. It made me realize how few opportunities we give women to come out of a movie feeling inspired and empowered by the female characters. It changed everything about how I chose roles moving forward.” ~ Geena Davis
“When we were filming Thelma & Louise 30 years ago, we had no idea the kind of cultural impact it would continue to have for decades. At the time, it was revolutionary to have two women in a film that weren’t enemies and were having fun together on screen. I think that’s been one of the biggest breakthroughs — today there are so many brilliant female actors making films where women aren’t adversarial to each other and have the power to determine their own destiny. “ ~ Susan Sarandon
