Frida speaks to her mother, her sister, & Ashley Judd's character about topics other than men. This deserves 3 of 3.

I haven't seen the movie in its entirety, but from what I know about Frida Kahlo I would guess the movie would have female conversations not centered around men. Didn't she have various lesbian relationships? Or does the movie not go into that?

It's hard to believe but, in "Frida," all the conversations between female characters surround the topic of men, usually Diego. There is one moment where Lupe and Frida discuss Frida's dark subject matter following her miscarriage, but the conversation ends up talking about a man stabbing his wife, and then Diego. There is also a scene where two unnamed females talk about marriage at Frida and Diego's wedding after party, but they are looking directly at Diego the whole time, and they are not named. Frida fails.
