Although technically it doesn't match (there are small instances when Jane talks to an unnamed psychiatrist and a nurse), it certainly challenges both the fixed definitions of the bechdel and gender identity. Basically the whole film involves one main character who through the trope of time travel plays the part of a woman (Jane) and a man (John) there are lengthy portions of the movie where they are involved in dialogue and I think its one movie that symbolises the current swing towards movies that intentionally rather than accidentally pass and address the Bechdel Test.
