Adaptation of the classic Jane Austen novel: has several named female characters and they have many conversations, many of which do not focus on men.

Isabella disagreed with the rating and said:
Though I love the movie its whole focus was to get married and impress a rich man. The female characters in the movie (there was more then one) never talked to each other about anything other then a man.

No, they do. Be it balls or ribbons or friends or family, there are plenty of conversations that occur among them that are not about a man/men.

Candace disagreed with the rating and said:
This, though a favorite film, has many women having dialogue throughout the film. However, many of the conversations are around or due to men even ribbons, and hair, to the aunt. Though the film is filled with dialogue many of them are about guys or esteem due to the lack of a guy, or self worth. Again, a longtime favorite but must agree with Isabelle.
