Cleopatra is a 2003 Argentine film directed by Eduardo Mignogna and starring Norma Aleandro, Natalia Oreiro, Leonardo Sbaraglia and Héctor Alterio. The plot of the movie closely follows that of Thelma & Louise.
Cleopatra (Aleandro) is an aged school teacher who struggles to maintain her unemployed husband (Alterio), who suffers from depression and leads a resigned life. She meets with soap opera star Sandra (Oreiro), whom she befriends after a failed audition. Sandra is also frustrated with her life, mainly because her producer won't let her have her way, and because she is constantly pursued by the press. Together they embark, on a whim, upon a road trip that teams them with rural worker Carlos (Sbaraglia), who picks them up on the way.
