Padraig disagreed with the rating and said:
The "woman in the food bank" is not a named woman, so the reason Daniel says the film passes is incorrect.

The only two named characters are Hayley Squires as Katie Morgan and
Briana Shann as her daughter Daisy Morgan.

If the conversation between an adult woman and her daughter counts, then it might pass (though I cant remember exactly what they talk about)

Although the lead role goes to a male - now there's a shocker - there are several named female characters. There are several convos in the job centre between women and another in the escort agency. The mother also has several convos with her daughter.

Katie and Daisy talk several times during the movie about several topics, v.g. Daisy being bullyed at school, Katie not sleeping enough, etc. Definitively passes.
