Alright, not a significant change, but I know there were two NAMED female characters present: Thomas Moore's wife Alice and his daughter Margaret.

Also not a significant change but there is also molly the maid and the woman from Leicester who both express their opinions and motivations. I believe the Bechdel test asks for the women's names because it is the most basic test of a female characters inclusion in a film. In that spirit this film should score one out of ten.
