Hugh said:
We have two named women, Police detective Kate Rylett discuss gambling with Henry’s elderly friend Mari. Although they do not directly talk about a man he Henry’s actions drives the conversation. Mari also remains silent. I believe this passes but it’s incredibly grey.

Lisa disagreed with the rating and said:
Nope, I don't think it passes. It's not a conversation when only one person talks. Also, I think a conversation (or in this case a semi-such) is a bout a man, when it's about a man's actions.
