Shelly is the woman from the MIT team, and Pauline is Dave's wife. Both talk to male characters and have their names established in the movie.

The rating is accurate, but the film is intentionally depicting a situation in a specific time period that excludes women, and it should be noted that it acknowledges this exclusion in a clear, conscious way. Good example of film that does not pass the Bechdel test, but respects its spirit.

And yet there's gratuitous full-frontal nudity from a female sex worker character who never speaks and is nameless.
