The movie not only has more than one woman; these women talk to each other. Additionally, Meryl Streep plays a sexually empowered OLDER woman. The story's focus is on the main character who is a woman and her goal to attend prom and live her own truth. None of her decisions are motivated by men

The whole premise of the movie is that one of the main characters wants to go to Prom with her girlfriend. There are plenty of scenes between her and her girlfriend/Meryl/Nicole about said prom.

The rating indicates that The Prom only passes one test, but the comment by the person who entered it clearly states that it passes all three tests. I'm not sure of the reason for the discrepancy. Am I missing something?
