Female characters talk to each other mostly in flashbacks, although occasionally Emma Thompson's character talks to one of Walt Disney's secretaries.

The main character, Mrs. Travers, speaks to several other named female characters. The prime example is Aunt Ellie speaking to young Travers, but other examples include Dolly and the cake trolley and Polly and the tea.

Aunt Ellie talks to Ginty and Biddy about helping out.

Margaret talks to Ginty about taking care of her sisters (just after mentioning loving her father more.)

Ginty tells Margaret it's time to come home.

Though it's mostly a movie about one woman collaborating with several men, Mrs. Travers does get a few conversations in. Aunt Ellie talks with her about cleaning, Mrs. Travers talks with Dolly, Disney's secretary, about various topics, and there's a very touching part where she saves her mother, Margaret, from suicide.

Two minor characters, secretaries, I think, talk about the main character, Mrs. Travers. Mrs. Travers complains about the food that one of the women, Dolly, brings. Perhaps Mrs Travers as a child talks to her mother but very little.
