There is also I believe a convo between the main character ( female ) and her mother.

The movie opens with a female teacher asking a young woman (the main character) about what she plans to do after high school.

An amazing example of modern cinematography showing an amazing representation of young women and the dangers in their lives. Extremely feminist. Even though the characters often talk about men, it more highlights how many of these relationships with men are damaging and dangerous and not as the young woman idealistically believes them to be.
