Selina and Rose-Ann (Mother and daughter) talk to each other throughout the film about a wide variety of subjects. Most of their conversations are explicitly not about men (Selina is keeping her relationship with Gordon a secret from her abusive mother and alcoholic grandfather).

Rose-Ann also talks with her friend Sadie about setting up a brothel(!). No men are mentioned in this conversation; it's mostly about moving out and setting up their business together.

Gordon and his brother Mark have several conversations, always about Selina. This may be one of those very rare films that doesn't pass the "reverse" Bechdel Test.
