It just barely passes due to a brief scene where a female character, Ally, arrives backstage at a concert, and Gail, a stage manager, greets her and gives her instructions.

Jo disagreed with the rating and said:
Gail is not a round character. The name test is meant to pick out which characters are given importance by the script. Gail does not matter to the story. This interaction doesn't satisfy a more critical application of the Bechdel Test.

Hugo Reinhardt disagreed with the rating and said:
They briefly talk about how Jackson is excited that Ally is there, thus making part of the conversation about the main male character.
