Natalie disagreed with the rating and said:
I think it passes all three tests. There's Helene and Emma and both of them have a few conversations. The last one, particularly, is an exchange between Nurse Andersone and Helene about the nightgown she'd be wearing. It may not be super pro-feminist or anything, but this is a definite pass.
