Anne said:
Whether or not you count Eli as a girl (she says she's not), there are no conversations between any of the female characters. In spite of it being essentially a movie about Eli.

Alex disagreed with the rating and said:
There is a conversation between Virginia and a nurse in the hospital asking if she'd open a window.

@Alex Unnamed nurses don't count. And such requests don't count as conversations.

The nurse was not named, otherwise the request would have been counted as a conversation. And Eli IS a male, not a female. So it doesn't pass.
