Quiz Description

In feminist theory, the Bechdel Test is a three part test applied to films to see if female characters are written on par with their male counterparts. The idea is traced to a 1985 comic strip entitled "Dykes To Watch Out For", where one of the characters explains that she only sees films that meet three criteria: 1. The film must have at least two female characters. 2. The female characters must hold a conversation of some kind with each other. 3. At least one of the conversations between two female characters must not be about a man or men. (Some versions of the test require a fourth stipulation, that the female characters be named) In fact, some cinemas in Sweden allegedly now rate films based on the Bechdel Test ... but ... While a not-so-shockingly high number of films do not meet this relatively low criteria, there are a shocking number of films that do pass the Bechdel test but might not be seen as "female friendly films". Given the year and a description, identify the following films that pass the Bechdel test.
