This movie is either a 2/3 or a 0/3.. Jennifer Lopez's character, Katherine, talks to the top doctor who developed the mind mapping procedure that is the premise of the movie, for several minutes... about Edward, their patient. The top doctor is an important character in the movie. However I cannot recall an instance where her name is actually mentioned. May just have missed it.. Anyway, it still ultimately fails the bechdel test. Shame, because The Cell is a viscerally beautiful and interesting movie. .

Just saw the movie. Her name (Miriam) is used in that conversation. But yeah, the film is a sausage fest.
