Q
Is it true that "The Women" has an all-female cast?
A
There are no male actors listed in the cast, and the original 1939 version of The Women had no male actors, so it is likely that this version will be an all-female cast, too. However, it is said that the extras used for the baby character in the final scene are in fact male.
Q
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
A
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for The Women can be found here.
