This is a tricky one; the movie is made up of interviews and vacation footage spliced together, so that the cast mostly addresses unseen people off-camera (or just the camera itself). There are a number of named women - including a young journalist who narrates the story - but no one named woman talks to another named woman. One young girl does video chat with her friend while waiting in the hospital (about their respective medical conditions), but the friend isn't named. The film passes the reverse Bechdel with at least six examples of named men talking to one another.
