Don't Mind Me Now said:
In a flashback sequence, there is a very short exchange between young Jessie and her mother, Sally, in which Jessie rejects her mother's request to see the eclipse on the boat with her. In the main plot, there are a number of instances where Jessie talks to a mental manifestation of herself (which is treated as an independent character) who tries to guide her through her situation and sarcastically quips about the real Jessie's negativity. Both instances are somewhat dubious, but given that the bulk of the movie is a one-woman show (with the only other "characters" being Jessie's mental projections of herself and Gerald), there's an argument to be made for leeway.
