Two women (Ingrid and Taylor) talk about Taylor's dream to buy the house next door to hers and turn it into a thrift type store.

How is this being listed as a fail? The example provided alone indicates a pass. And that's not the only passing conversation Ingrid and Taylor have; they also discuss the items in the car Ingrid borrowed, a book Taylor claims to have read, and, later, Ingrid's mental issues. Ingrid also witnesses Taylor talking to another female character, Harley, about the same subject as the original poster's example.

This movie clearly passes 3/3 tests. The two main characters Ingrid and Taylor are both female and have multiple conversations on subjects other than a man.

Ingrid and Taylor talk to one another about multiple non-male centric topics during the whole movie, one example is listed by Jordan above.

It looks like the original submitter misclicked when choosing the rating here? The movie definitely passes due to the above scene and others.
