There are 4 important and strong female chatecters in this film (you could not take any of them away from the film) and a couple of other named females.
However when they talk with each other it is about men and they are defined by men, but there are couple of times when there is a lines like; -Did you have good time around in the party - Not really. Or some lines about something else in longer conversation about men.
So I am not sure what is definition of talking but I placed this here since I was not sure, some clearer defination of talking would be nice.

valleygirl disagreed with the rating and said:
Chinoiserie, it sounds like the film should pass based on your evidence. As long as they talk to each other at all about another topic, that's enough to pass.
