There are several women and some of them talk to each other. Most of the time when they do, they are talking about the male main character or another male character.

There is a scene where Missy (the wife) makes a suggestion to Georgina (the housekeeper) that she lay down. Georgina responds saying that she thinks she will. This is barely a conversation. But I also think there is a point where Missy tells Rose (the girlfriend) that the party is tomorrow and Rose gets upset and says she wishes she knew about it. And Missy says the party is the same day every year. And Rose says that it isn't. It's possible that Dean chimed in on one of those lines, but I think it was Missy for that whole exchange. Either way, I believe that the combination of these two moments does make this movie barely pass.

I think this is a really great movie that discusses a prevalent race issue that is still very real in America. Get Out brings to light many microaggressions the black people face and the concept of people wanting to be black until its actually time to be black. Get Out also ditches the white-savior narrative as both the hero and protagonist of this film were black men and the antagonists are all white. Overall, Get Out was one of the best movies of 2017.
