Several powerful and strong-willed female characters in this movie, but few interactions between any two of them and, I believe, no conversations between two of them that aren't about the male protagonist (the female characters are his wife, daughter, and mistress).

The main character is the man, Richard Gere and his failings and whatnot.

His daughter, wife and mistress are all strong characters, as said, but they barely interact. They only talk about him or what he's done.
