Joni and daughter Meg talk about affording Meg's education. Meg calls Marta about what Marta will do with her inheritance.

Really quick, like second scene, Bechdel when Marta tells her sister Annie that she can keep watching her violent tv show (tho I suppose a male voice is heard on the show?) It's a triple-del if her mother got a name!

In any case the Marta/Meg Bechdels are clear - I especially love when Meg tries to apologize to Marta for outing her mother as undocumented, proving that she too is as nasty as the rest of the family, no matter what social justice talk she uses when debating the family.

Ah what a primo movie! Red dimes and correctly labeled medication for all!

It does even better than most movies, as Marta and her sister are POC women who have conversations not related to men or love! It's a rare movie that does this.
