This movie has 7 named male characters that I can remember and one named female character. The one named female character is the ONLY female character.

Beyond failing the bechdel test, this movie also fails with representations of women, period. The only female character is kind of the villain of the movie.... the amoral, murdering sister whose unforgivable secret is compared with the altruistic secret of the honorable, idealistic protagonist. fail.
