Do Your Favorite Movies Pass the Bechdel Test?

Murray Close


The Hunger Games

Rating: 3/3

This dystopia hit does really well! It helps that the main character is a girl, and that the subject matter isn’t primarily romantic. It passes based upon Katniss’s exchanges with her mother, Prim, Effie, and Rue, most of which are about some aspect of the Hunger Games.
