Main character is female and has a best friend who also has a daughter. They're all strong and independent women who talk a lot and about a lot of things, including saving the world.

Totally agree.
There's conversation between Carol and Mar-vell too.
And none of these women has relationship based on any man.
I think it passes the test not just technically, but in sprit.

there are 5 prominent women characters: Carol, Marie, Monica, Dr. Wendy Lawson, and Minn-Erva. These women interact with each other (mostly each one interacts with Carol, though Marie and Monica have dialogue scenes together because they are mother and daughter).

I cannot recall a single instance when they discuss men at all. These characters are the driving force of the film, with Dr. Lawson as the catalyst for the plot.

Whilst I agree, I feel that the approach to feminism in the movie was rather on the nose. It felt like they were congratulating themselves for something other movies studios have done years before them...? DC even beat them to it, and then they just shove in a 'women should smile more' joke. What's the punchline, that the guy is a douche?

Carol speaks with Dr. Wendy Larson about Goose the cat and their mission. Vers talks to the Supreme Intelligence, who to her resembles Dr. Larson.

Carol and Maria speak to each other mostly about Carol's disappearance. Carol and Monica talk to each other about their past and what things Carol left behind when she disappeared. Monica tells Maria to go on the mission and be a good role model for her.

This might pass some super Bechdel test as the women in the movie *never* talk about a man.

The main character also has an older female mentor figure.

Even better, there's an OLDER strong woman character who is a scientist (okay, she's also an alien, but still...) who has a conversation with the main character about saving the world.
