C Leung said:
There are three, archetypal female characters in this noir: Susan, a damsel in distress; Rita, the intrepid stripper; and Alicia, a specter of a trophy wife. Without revealing spoilers, two of the women share a scene, but whether they actually talk to each other is debatable, as one of them is reluctant. Either way, the conversation revolves around a male love interest.
