John Kerr disagreed with the rating and said:
I don't think a two sentence exchange between a mother and her nine year old daughter qualifies as a "conversation between two women." Chastain also asks her maid/babysitter if the kids are OK, after returning from a night out. The maid says "All is good," and exits. I don't consider that a conversation either.
