This movie is a strong pass: Elizabeth talks to Carolyn. Carolyn talks to Victoria. Elizabeth talks to Victoria. Elizabeth talks to Angelique. Julia talks to Carolyn (I think). There are a number of women in this film who converse with one another - not just about men, but other topics as well.

When Angelique (Eva Green) shows up at the house, she and Elizabeth (Michelle Pfeiffer) talk about what she's doing there.

Dr. Hoffman talks with Elizabeth, although it is about Barnabas, so 2/3 tests.

Ok, this one is a CLEAR pass, to say that it doesen't pass the test is just plain wrong. There are several ocasions where namned female characters talk about other stuff than men. For exampel, when Vicky applies for the jobb Elizabeth questions her on a number of things, like her wievs on the war. *SPOILER* When it's revealed that Carolyn is a warewolf Angelique tells Elizabeth that she's the one who sent a warewolf to bite Carolyn when she was a baby. Carolyn also tells Elizabeth that they shouldn't make a big deal about it or somethin like that. I belive Josettes ghost also has a brief conversation with Vicky. I think Elizabeth has some other dialoge with Dr. Hoffman, Angelique and Carolyn that passes the test as well but I'm not completly sure. But there's no question that the movie passes all three parts of the test.

The original commentator even says that it's a pass- presumably they accidentally ticked off the wrong box.

Is there any way for the rating to be altered to reflect this?
