Thelma & Louise = Sleeveless Errand

I just watched the amazing 1991 movie, Thelma & Louise again. Why is this not required viewing for all people annually? It just struck me, as I reminded myself of what I’ve read over the past few weeks, how similar the ending was to Sleeveless Errand. The women, overwhelmed by patriarchy, go off a cliff. This happens in the 1929 novel, and over and over again, also in the 1991 film.
