Many important female characters without with the movie wouldn't happen. That talk often about much more important things than most male characters. The whole thing is focused on a young woman Dani who makes most plot-changing decisions.

Just wanna point out that this movie is a great example of how a movie passing the bechdel test is not feminist, and not for the usual "barely passes, females otherwise nonimportant reason".

In this movie the female protagonist is very important... And is also the person who victim blames the guy who got [redacted] and condemns him to death for it. Whatever it is, that is not feminism.

Julian, you’re really saying the victim in the film is anyone other than Dani? She is gaslit the entire film, which was the whole point. It was an emotionally toxic relationship, and the guy was lying to her the entire time, and he also stole his friend’s thesis idea and lied about it. The boyfriend was the villain.
