This one clearly matches - there are a plethora of named female characters, including Lena, Seraphine, Ridley, Emily, Savannah, Amma, Gramma, etc. There are frequent conversations between the different women, and since Lena is the focus of most of the action, many of the conversations are about her fate. It passes the Bechdel test just fine, but it's plenty anti-feminist in many, many other ways.

This is one of the examples showing that passing the Bechdel test doesn't mean a movie is feminist. This is one of the most anti-feminist movies I've seen in a long time, and the worst part is that the movie is aimed for teenagers.
