I'm not sure how this is possible with multiple main characters who are women engaging each other in conversation about their own relationship.

Aurora's interaction in the hospital with the nurses to convince them to give Emma a pain shot alone would satisfy the Bechdel Test.

I disagree. There are more than two women in this movie. And yes, they talk. They are mother and daughter. They do discuss men, but they also discuss children, cancer, moving, and more.

They absolutely talk about things other than a man. Are you kidding me?

This movie passes on the first 3 minutes alone with mother and daughter talking about how she cannot sleep
