Only two of the (three or four) female characters in this film speak to each other, and they are mother & daughter. Their conversation is limited to discussing the father, and the suitors to the daughter.

That is true, but the film is set in the 70s, and actually portrays very well the sexism of the time.

@Natasha: That doesn't matter for this test. I've removed the disagree flag from your comment since the "That is true" says you're actually agreeing. The test is not about how well a movie portrays sexism in the 70s.
