“Stronger” is a movie you need to see, no matter how much you think you don’t need to see it. A less effective version of the same fact-based story, even with the same actors doing the same excellent work — it’s Jake Gyllenhaal’s finest, truest two hours on film — might creak and groan with “inspirational weepie” biopic machinery, over-engineered Big Moments and an arm-twisting, melodramatic approach to its subject.
Sunny (literally; this is the brightest, squintiest film in months) and engaging, as far as it goes, “Battle of the Sexes” is a two-headed biopic reluctant to complicate its coming-out story with too many … complications. This will not be a problem for most audiences. Collectively, the “Battle of the Sexes” team knows how to please a crowd.
The 35th edition of the Reeling film festival opens Thursday, and for the occasion “Pretty Little Liars” star Tyler Blackburn and Jenna Ushkowitz of “Glee” will hit the red carpet at the Music Box Theatre. They’re coming for the Chicago premiere of “Hello Again,” director and Northwest University grad Tom Gustafson’s film adaptation of the Michael John LaChiusa musical version of “La Ronde.” The movie also stars Audra McDonald, Martha Plimpton and Cheyenne Jackson.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
