I disagree on the fact that this movie has passed the Bechdel list because there is no main female actors in this

The one woman in this movie's only role is to be a 60s housewife who does nothing but further the story of the man. Her name is not even mentioned until it is yelled at her in a fight between her and said husband. She never even has a scene that is not her being an extension of her husband. Although it is not related to the Bechdel Test, I would also like to add that there appears to be only one person of color in the movie. A black male janitor who barely has his face or 4 seconds on the screen. And to think this movie was nominated for an Oscar in 2020...
