The female protagonist (Sally) talks with her female friend (Olive) about other things than men. There is a scene where they talk about Sally applying for an acting job, her new apartment, and waiting for spring, though the conversation also switches to men. The next scene has Sally introducing her new apartment to Olive where they talk about the apartment, but also men (the starting point for the film is Sally's break-up from her boyfriend, and the film concerns her new budding romance, so this is expected, of course). However, there are plenty of instances like these where Sally and Olive talk about everyday things besides men.
