A woman washes her hands, then slowly, deliberately drops her wedding ring down the drain of the sink. Her iPhone screen shows several “Fuck you” texts from her ex, David. In the next scene, she’s inhaling several bags of chips and chocolate bars and, between gasping breaths, slamming a can of Coca-Cola. It can’t be any less subtle than this: No Light and No Land Anywhere, directed by Amber Sealey and executive-produced by Miranda July, is woman-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous-breakdown cinema.
Romantic comedies are always looking to reinvent themselves, and Rachel Israel’s debut feature, Keep the Change, arrives as a fresh iteration that still calls back to the genre’s Nora Ephron–wave classics. The story follows the familiar arc of an ornery guy falling for a sweet girl, but what’s new is that the protagonists, David and Sarah — and the nonprofessional actors who play them (Brandon Polansky and Samantha Elisofon) — are autistic. I know what you’re thinking: That’s tricky territory.
Welcome to "Reel Women," a column highlighting important women in the world of cinema, from on-screen characters to real-life filmmakers. It’s a shame that the name “Chantel Mitchell” doesn’t ring bells like her fellow ’90s teen comedy classmates Cher Horowitz or Laney Boggs, though Chantel, the protagonist of Leslie Harris’s 1993 debut film Just Another Girl on the I.R.T., has enough spirit and sass to warrant a spot in the roster’s top tier. And it doesn’t take very long to find that out.
@faggiecheung@grahamcarterr rube LOL but ya this bitch tried to guilt me by saying "u rly want me to kick a KID out from my seat WOW" when there were plenty single seats around and then she went out and bought popcorn w/ 5 mins left of the movie
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
