This movie has various prominent female characters and on a few occasions they do converse, though whether they ever communicate about something other than a male character is shaky. The two most prominent scenes with female characters conversing is (A) the news reporter and the FBI agent discussing the nature of the reporter's relationship with the man she was investigating, and (B) 4 teenage girls in the lunchroom at school. One girl is discussing her brother's medical condition when the other interrupts her to talk about getting asked on a date by a boy.
This rating should not reflect badly on the movie, which regardless of the test has multilayered female characters and an excellent story. I'd recommend it.
