Nellie said:
The film focuses on the survivor guilt of the main character Diana. She has many conversations with other female characters, particularly her best friend Maureen and her daughter Emma. Men do come up in conversations, however, they talk many many other topics, particularly their actions/choices. Also, fails the reverse test, as know two named male characters have a conversation with each other.
