Isn't one of his "imaginary friends" a young girl with a name, and the fact she never ages is the clue that lets him realize he's hallucinating. I would call her a character.

IMDb lists three women in the credits, so I've updated the rating to 1/3.

It's a shame that the film had not focused more on Alicia's mental health advocacy, and how she left her job to take care of John. Otherwise, an amazing movie, that could've been better if it showed how schizophrenia took a toll on their relationship, with equal focus on both sexes.
