Swedish cinemas to use Bechdel test rating
Sweden is ground zero for loony feminism. I sometimes suspect Sweden is just trolling the rest of the world.
You expect movie ratings to tell you whether a film contains nudity, sex, profanity or violence. Now cinemas in Sweden are introducing a new rating to highlight gender bias, or rather the absence of it.
To get an A rating, a movie must pass the so-called Bechdel test, which means it must have at least two named female characters who talk to each other about something other than a man.
