Alex and Beth talk about Beth's apartment. Conversation last only couple of lines and Beth say twice "We've been very happy here" (she, her husband and their daughter) which can be viewed as talking about a man.

Beth help Ellen practise to school play (I think, the movie doesn't explain this part), which consist of Beth asking Ellen to repeat her lines - hardly a conversation.

Beth ask Alicia, where's Ellen.

A really weak pass. To be fair, almost all conversations in this movie happen between male and female character.
