Do Your Favorite Movies Pass the Bechdel Test?

This is a great example of how a film failing the Bechdel test doesn’t mean that it’s sexist. Gravity only has one named female character, but she’s the main character in a cast of two (okay, three). So if you haven’t seen it yet, get thee to a 3D theater!
