This paper explains that, in Kate Chopin's novel, "The Awakening," and the movie ,"Thelma and Louis," the characters Edna and Thelma both found themselves in stifling marriages, void of passion and compassion. The author points out that both characters are awakened by another woman to the senses and human spirit. Each then enters into a world of self-discovery, a discovery of the female spirit, to become a woman of maturity and empathy. This paper concludes that achieving the American Dream is often a painful and impossible road to travel. The choice of death was a statement by each woman that she had achieved a slice of happiness, and no one was going to take it away or mar its image and memory.
