Charlie St. Cloud

Charlie St. Cloud is the name of a young teenage sailor who was his whole life a head of him. His reality however comes to a grinding halt when his little brother and lifeline is killed in a car accident. It is now five years later and he is still haunted by his brother’s death. When a beautiful girl comes into his life he must choose between the future and the past and decide whether or not to move on with his life or forever be stuck in the past. That is basically the synopsis of this 90 -minute film. It fills the whole plot up in a nutshell and teases you enough to see it or not. It does not however get into how deep the fascinating this drama really is. It does not even touch the surface of the depth of this film. No mere paragraph can contain enough depth to tell about this movie. No one movie review can either. So I will just tell you what I think in a page or so. This movie was good. In fact it was excellent. I was hooked from the very beginning. I was intrigued from the start and kept on the edge of my seat the entire length of the film. There were a few surprises in this movie and a few occasions for tears as well. I will not give to much a way but insist that you see this film right away. It is fascinating and mesmerizing and good from start to finish. This is a film that should not be seen alone or kept to one self. It is a film that must be shared with the masses. The acting performances are all excellent and well done. The cinematography is fanatic and the music aint bad either. This is a movie for the ages and should be shared with the ages as well. Kids may not understand it but teenagers and adults are sure to be pleased. I loved it and I am the hardest of critics. You will like it too. If you don’t like you may not be alive. So bring out the resuscitator and shock yourself back to life. This film is amazing. It is sure to please and guaranteed to make you think. Grade A+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
