The diverse lives of 4 different white women are fascinating in the film, and all the four white women have received perfect education(Bell, 1995). They are considered as the upper class in New Yorkin the film plot. One actress in the film is Carrie, and her life is related to a rich guy named Mr. Big to a great degree. Miranda, who is a woman purchasing the career attentively, is a lawyer, and she spares no effort to be a qualified mother at the same time.

Human interaction means the communications between one person and another person or one group of persons and another group of persons.
