- Most people know the basic concept of the Bechdel Test, if not by name. Having more than one developed female character whose arc does not rely on a male character is indeed a great thing to strive for in cinema.

Just the same, a movie that does not pass the test is by no means automatically a bad or misogynistic movie. Many say that 2015 was a good year in cinema....   [tags: Woman, Gender, Female, Film]
