Arguably, there's one female character who talks to another... but seeing as she's sort of talking to herself in a way, I don't think it counts.

Nah nah, this is all wrong. Two characters who are seperate entities (because well, they're not in the same skin.) and are also female do indeed talk to eachother in this, and it aint about a man.

The rating is wrong not only because Maya extensively talks to her younger self multiple times about something that isn’t a man, but also Maya and Laura talk to each other. Part of it the conversation was about Adam yes, but the other part is about Maya shooting Laura.

I think sometimes people give ratings either without having paid attention to the movie or they don’t truly understand the test. This film passes all 3 criteria.

I don’t see how talking to herself would count. Zoe Saldaña’s character should’ve had a dialogue with the big bad but somehow, did not happen despite how her character pretty much drives the entire movie.

it's not "Two characters" it's ONE person at two points in her life talking to HERSELF she is interacting with HERSELF.
if she was talking to herself in a mirror would that count?

Dani disagreed with the rating and said:
With the movie being based on time travel, I think the conversation between Maya's younger and older self should count. Additionally, it really is two separate characters as the younger Maya's life path could be altered compared to the older Maya.

there are more than 1 female characters also maya talks to laura about killing her while it is a about a minute long conversation it does make it pass the bechdel test

Ardyn disagreed with the rating and said:
Would you call young Adam and Adam the same character? In my opinion, no. Sure they are the same person but their personalities/experiences are different, separate. So with that logic, Young Maya is a different character from “present”. But if you still won’t take that, Laura is an important character, even if their interaction is short, Laura and Maya do technically have a conversation. So I believe The Adam Project passes the Bechdal test.
