This film passes 2/3 tests, but even that is dubious. There are only a couple of scenes where women who are named characters converse with one another, and we can hear what they're saying. Most of what little dialogue there is between women lasts under 30 seconds, and it's always centered around men. There is one scene that lasts more than 30 seconds between Marisol and the witch/coven expert, but again their conversation is about Jessie, and it's dubious because there is a guy involved in the conversation as well. He has a minimal speaking role in the conversation, rather he's preoccupied with filming the conversation. We see the women conversing through his gaze.
