Protagonist is female, as is co-protagonist. A man plays major role in episode but isn't the focus for most of the episode.

Did someone enter this rating in incorrectly? Commenter above implies. and my watching experience also, that this passes all three tests. Yet the rating claims that the female characters don't talk to each other. This is most certainly wrong.

Here's some evidence from the IMDB summary:
"Victoria wakes with a head-ache and bandaged wrists,pills spilled on the floor. A strange sign is flickering on the television but she can remember nothing. Outside she meets Jem, a young woman who explains that the signal on the television set comes from the White Bear transmitter."

That snippet shows that all three tests are passed.

White Bear is an episode of Black Mirrors, not a movie.
