All characters in this movie are female, other than Mother, who is technically a robot but goes by she/her and has a woman's voice, and the girl's baby brother, who is not born until much later in the film. Other than the brother, there are no other males to talk about, so most dialogue in the film is not about males.

Mother said:
Technically speaking, it doesn’t pass, because the only named characters are Mother (who is an AI, not a woman) and Daughter. But Hilary Swank’s character, while not named, is important enough to the plot that it fits the *spirit* of the test.

Vishwaraj disagreed with the rating and said:
I think the reason why I disagree is because mother being an AI doesn’t really pass the bechdel test’s true aim

When I saw this movie one of my first thought was: this one definitely passes the Bechdel test. Maybe not in the literal sense (no one has a name, one is AI). But the impression that remain in my head is: an all female cast, dealing with deep technical and philosophical issues – everything male is de facto absent and I have not missed it at all. Great film.
