Waitress is a heartwarming tale about a pretty young waitress (Keri Russel) in a bad marriage married to a horrible husband and pregnant with their child. In tthe beginning every female character is sweet and cuddly. Every male character on the other hand is mean and nasty. The characters develop over the length of the film and grow into intelligent people. The plotline is contrived yet plausible. The acting is acceptale and the characters are somewhat well developed. The movie in general is concivable but not exactly realistic. It is all a little to perfect. While you will be entertained you will also be left with many questions. Perhaps that however is the sign of a good movie. This movie is more of a chickflick than a movie for the whole family. While men may find it entertaining, women will find it irresistable. The women are defeinetly the stronger sex. This is most definetly a movie for the girls night out. 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!
