Mike said:
Scarlett Johansson's character, Laura, is the only named character in the film, however she is the main character and most of the men have very few lines.

This is a very surrealist film that explores ideas of gender roles and the objectification of women. For the first half of the film Laura preys on men the same way Ted Bundy preyed on women. Midway through the film, her position is switched. Be forewarned, there is a rape scene in this movie.
