"So Much Water So Close to Home" and the movie "Cruel Intentions" are similar in that they both deal with sexual relationships, both deal with the sexes trying to gain an upper-hand through sexual provocations, and both deal with people who are both emotionally divested from their responsibilities. People are emotionally self absorbed and almost completely devoted to their own well-being and happiness even though others are cruelly hurt and in the case of "So Much Water So Close to Home" a woman is raped and murdered. Your thesis could compare the tone of both, the mood and imagery, or the actions of the main characters.
