The two most relevant female characters are both mainly romantic interests in terms of how they add to the plot.

There are only two named female characters, Darling and Debora. They never speak to each other. I think that Debora does speak to a fellow waitress during the film, but the waitress isn't named.

3 Female Characters- filling all female archetypes.

1. Wholesome girl next door character who is the love interest.
2. Hypersexual intimidating female villain/henchmen
3. Dead mother in flashbacks.

It's a shame because Spacey's character could've been switched out for a female and not affected the plot at all.

In saying that, it's a fantastic film and I encourage everyone to see it.

Agree with previous comments, but I don't encourage anyone to watch this film. There's no excuse for the terrible female characters - this is 2017.
They could have cast a woman for any of the important characters but chose to only cast women as love interests (or dead mothers) with zero personality.

Tate disagreed with the rating and said:
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there is a scene where Debora is taking Darlings order at the diner, and she simply asks her what she would like to order- no talk of a male character at all. Again, I may be wrong but I thought I should bring it up for discussion.

Kia Ora from New Zealand, just stumbled across this page and wholeheartedly agree. Another point that boggled me throughout was how the writers made Darling be so ok with any traumatic shit baby threw her into, she was such a companion object. Gross. -5/ 5 stars

After checking the dinner scene, Debora never actually interacts with Darling. She exclusively talks to Bats (Jamie Fox) instead. The test is therefore failed indeed.

Good movie though.
