This film gets this rating as the main female character converses with a female co-worker and her boss, who are both named.

At these points: [ 05:19, 5:50, 1:30:25 ]
there are small interactions between these characters, but men almost always come up in some way.

At 1:31:03, the main character talks to a co-worker, attempting again to get a favour done. By this point, the turning down of another favour is instrumental in the growth of the main character and subsequently the plot. The conversation lasts a minute - and would be the longest point in which two female characters talk, regardless of the subject matter.

Thus, it does pass the Bechdel test, but is dubious and has little female characters and interactions.
