This movie is your typical inspirational story. It tells of an 11 year old boy with a single mother who is in summer school due to lack of effort anger his father left him and his mother. When what do you know a young dolphins is left beached on the surface of his summer hometown. Suddenly, a pretty young face in the form of 11 year old girl shows him how be alive again. Sound familiar it is the cookie cutter plotline to all this inspiration true stories. In order to make these films work you have to make it enjoyable. This film managed to do just that. The film boasts two marquee names in the form of Ashley Judd and Harry Conic Jr playing the supporting charter (The parents of the progenies.) It also stars Morgan Freeman and Kris Kristofferson. Other elements that make such films as this work are present as well. Music by Mark Isham who has worked on such films as Quiz Show, Crash and Point Break. Director Charles Martian Smith has had a behind the scenes hand in such films as American Graffiti, The Untouchables and Starman. With such ingredients mixed into a formula how can you not love the solution? P.S. The solution within the plot of this film s creative too. See it today from Netflix or simply pick it up from your local Redbox. 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!
