Provides examples of:

  • All Lesbians Want Kids: Played for Drama. Jinny is thrilled at the prospect of becoming a mum, but Martha is more ambivalent and worried about losing Jinny to their children.
  • Butch Lesbian: Martha, who dresses and behaves more masculinely than her wife, Jinny.
  • Deliberately Monochrome
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Jinny, who is dressed more femininely than her wife, Martha, and is pregnant with triplets.
  • No Ending: Janet pulls a gun on Marianne, Tom's wife and it cuts to credits.
  • No Party Given: Although it's heavily implied that Janet is a Labour MP, the party name is never explicitly stated.
  • Sanity Slippage: Tom gets increasingly erratic as the film progresses, not helped by all the cocaine he's on.
