Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Khouri began as a producer of music videos and production coordinator of the "Rigoletto" segment of the film "Aria" (1987) before writing the script for the controversial "Thelma & Louise" (1991). Praised as an exuberant, liberating, feminist buddy film and female take on road movies by a majority of critics, the feature was also reviled by others as a pseudo-feminist revenge fantasy in which the two central characters shoot and kill a man with his hands raised in surrender, rob a convenience store and choose suicide over facing the consequences of their actions. Ultimately, critical and popular favor came down on Khouri's side, with the writer winning several awards, most notably an Oscar. Whatever the screenplay's merits or compromises, it did raise issues about gender politics which were hotly debated by both media and public alike. That feat was not repeated by Khouri's subsequent screenplay for "Something to Talk About" (1995), a popular and generally well-received comedy-drama about a woman's world turned upside down by her husband's infidelity. The feminist sentiments were still there, but the tone was inescapably gentler and more eager to please.
