There are 5 main characters, 3 women, a man, and one of the women's children who is a boy.

They talk about about the son quite often, but they also discuss themselves and their lives as well.

The film passes all 3 tests for sure (not dubious at all). There is an entire segment where the 3 main leads discuss menstruation among countless other conversations that don't all revolve around Jamie.

This film certainly passes all 3 tests, not dubious at all. Julie and Abbie talk about Abbie's photos at the beginning of the film.

Abbie and Dorothea also talk to each other about Abbie's cancer, and music, and birds, and just general life. However there are few times when Julie is not talking about men. Definitely not dubious.

Though, the rating is not dubious, for a feminist film its rather off putting that it is centred around all of these women’s effect on a single man. Not very feminist in my opinion.
