Stanley and Iris

This is a slow moving but evenly paced drama. It is about two people who fall in love at middle age. They meet after she gets mugged on a bus and they fall in love. She teaches him to read, and he teaches her to live again. Together they make the perfect pair. The cast is fantastic. Robert De Niro and Jane Fonda play the titular characters and play them to perfection. They play off each other well and bring instant chemistry to the screen. The supporting cast is good too. This is a great film with some wonderful scenes. This movie will stick with me for a while. It is 24 hours later and I am just writing my review now. I will definitely recommend this movie to friends loved ones and co-workers. I found it on X finity free On Demand. Rent it today and determine for yourself. Grade B+

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!
