Main character Mia talks to her mother, Joanne, on several occasions. For instance about waking up. Mia and Keira also communicate about something besides a man.

Yes, Mia talks to her mother through out the movie. She also fights with her sister Tyler a lot where they hurl verbal abuse at each other. At the very beginning she leaves her ex best friend Keeley a voice mail message (not sure if this counts), before going to the park and getting into a fight with Keeley and her clique, criticizing their terrible dancing and Keeley's poor choice in friends. Her mother and sister also talk to each other, usually in a hostile way. Her mother also talks to the social worker about Mia and Tyler(I can't remember if the social worker is named). And yes, at the end when she kidnaps Keira she shouts at her quite a bit and only for a second does she bring up Connor, "you're just as bad as your fucking father".

This film excels the test.
