The most noteworthy Celie and Shug scene I remember produces the title of the film in which they discuss nature and God. Granted, they're referring to God as male - but I think that I could be debated for the purposes of the test.

Also, early in the film you see Celie being taught to read by her sister, Nettie; and their parting.

The main characters in this movie are all female. You don't really hear the male characters talk about their experiences, but come to understand them through the way they interact with the main (female) characters.
