Lucy, the female lead, asks a female reporter named Cynthia if she could help her report the news story. Cynthia declines and makes her take her coffee order.

The reporter is not named, she’s not even on the IMDb page of the film

The report character is known from the game as Cynthia McMasters but I don’t remember her being actually named in the film. So no pass

The reporter is named Cynthia McMaster, which is on IMDB. However, she is not on the main cast list.

I think it's not really about Cynthia being named. She is a side character who disappears at once. I didn't remember her, and I saw the movie just last week. In the sence of importance she is an unnamed character. In my opinion it is importance to the plot that matters. The importance is just measured by asking if they're named.

The movie does pass the Bechdel test, because it literally meets the requirements. Anyone who disagrees is just being nitpicky and illogical.

It is very brief but Lucy calls her Mrs. McMasters and asks her if she can run a story. She ignores what she says however, asks her for a coffee and leaves. Lucy then says "Sure Cynthia" to herself.
