Some women talk to each other but it is between a named female character and an unnamed female character. They are also usually orders with little substance e.g. The Director shouting "Again!" at the ballet dancer or The Adjudicator asking an unnamed female administrator to execute an order.

Passes 3/3. The Adjudicator (female) and The Director (female) talk about The Director's service to the High Table council vs her Ruska Roma tribe.

But The Director and The Adjudicator talk to each other, and they're named characters even if their names are just titles. I think they only talk about John Wick though, so it should be 2/3.

On the other hand, apparently The Adjudicator is officially a non-binary character, so I don't know how that should affect the test.

There is a scene in which The Director and The Adjudicator talk to each other. The Adjudicator accuses The Director of helping John Wick.

JohnnyS disagreed with the rating and said:
I'm pretty sure the Adjudicator and the Director (both named characters) have a conversation with substance (the one ending with the director's hands being stabbed through). It is, however, all about John Wick. So I think it still fails; passing 2/3 instead of 1/3.

Also, not that this helps it pass the test, but I don't really know if any two named MALE characters even have a conversation that isn't about John Wick. I think every conversation in pretty much every movie is directly concerning John Wick haha.

The Adjudicator and The Director have an exchange where the Adjudicator tells the Director that payment for betraying the High Table being in blood and the Director responds that she has served and will be of service.

It should be noted that The Adjudicator is not a woman. They are Non-Binary, and played by a Non-Binary actor.
