The first conversation that was between two women was between Grace and her mom (Michelle) that was not about a man. Grace was coming home from youth group well actually she skipped and went to the movies instead. “Hi babe, how was youth group?” “Fine. It was really good.” But what makes this movie dubious is about halfway through when Grace and Renae first meet. . Renae is looking and getting to know the new girls in town before making decisions on which girl should be her opening act and spend time out on tour together. They start talking about music but then it turns to guys. Then it kind of goes away from guys to talking about bodies but that is in reference to men and for women being able to get what they want by using their bodies and using men more than they use us. Which I guess could still be considered talking about men. Since most of the time when Grace gets talked to besides those two; she is talked to about her dad and God and the role that they have played in her life.
