Interesting movie with respect to The Test.
It has several "named" women characters, played by respected and accomplished actresses.
Several speak to each other, often about something other than a man. When they do speak about men, it is integral and pivotal to the plot.
However, the movie is definitely about men - men as The Other.
Women have most of the power in this movie, but it is economic, not sexual power.
So, this is a pro-male feminist movie about men.
Except for one damned line that (nearly?) ruins the movie.
