Mike said:
Only one female character, although she's the focus of the story. In a remarkable sequence, she kills her sexually abusive stepfather, then spends most of the rest of the movie disguised as a boy, on the run from the law. Which leads to this classic line: "Every dick in the world is out there, lookin' for her in men's clothes."
