I would say no, the central conflict is not character vs. character, or Brad vs. Gavin. It is Brad vs. the entire world/the nature of reality. Why? Because he can't accept reality. He has denied that his sister died. He's fighting reality in relation to his sister, Gavin, his mom…each conflict with a character is just an example of how he clashes with reality, due to his need to escape from it.
