CASE STUDY The Painted Bird Czech director Vaclav Marhoul’s adaptation of Polish novelist Jerzy Kosinski’s Holocaust story has been a labor of love. Marhoul spent two years negotiating the rights to the 1965 novel — which stirred controversy at the time of its release for its unflinching portrayal of the horrors of war — and a further six in development before starting principal photography in March 2017 on location in Ukraine.
When director Andrey Zvyagintsev first got the script for Loveless, a drama about a divorcing couple who must come together when their son goes missing, he was baffled by just one thing: the film’s title. “I decided to make it a working title and later find a better one,” Zvyagintsev recalls of Oleg Negin’s script. “I had other ideas — for instance, Battlefield.
The creator of BBC hit sitcom Mrs Brown's Boys, which features a flamboyant gay character, has turned down a Russian licensing deal for the show after being told the character would have to be cut out. Brendan O'Carroll, who plays Agnes Brown, the loud-mouthed Irish matriach, in the show, said that the sexual identity of Rory Brown, one of her character's sons, is a key part of the show and non-negotiable.
@theresa_may This is actually a lie, isn't it Mrs May? The fact is, these charges have been outlawed by the EU... and since the UK remains in the EU, we are subject to that law. Nothing to do with the Tories whatsoever. Why do you insist on lying?
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".
