To see if your favorite movie passes the Bechdel Test:
- Select the movie from the drop down list
- Click Bechdelerate to see the Bechdelerator's Analysis.
- The D3 focal graph created reflects communication between characters. Pink nodes are female, blue nodes are male, the lines connecting them are lines shared between them. To identify a particular character, hover over a node.
- Scrapes movie script data from IMSDB using the Cheerio and Request libraries
- Identifies main characters through our Bechdelerator Algorithm and through the Rotten Tomatoes API
- Makes predictions about the genders of main characters with the Genderize API
- Predicts if a given movie passes the Bechdel Test
- Generates a D3 focal graph reflecting character communication
- Improve user interface
