The Son of Rambow

This is a story of youth and adolescence. This is a story of friendship and endurance. The Son Of Rambow is a beautiful tale of childhood innocence. It is A pursuit of brotherhood and bonding, a movie that you will not soon forget. The storyline is simple. Two young boys are devoted fans of the Rambo series. They therefore decide on their own to make their own home movie about their role model. A homage to the character they inspire to be more like. The setting is England in the early 21st century. The two young miscreants meet in the hallway outside of the principals office. They form an instant bond that lasts throughout the whole movie. A bond that helps them grow and mature as the movie reaches it’s satisfying conclusion. The acting is excellent. The scenery is breathtaking and the script top notch. The screenplay is Oscar caliberas well. This is a film that will stay will you for years to come. This is the reason I go to art house theaters. This is the type of film that never gets enough publicity or credit. I only wish all movies were made with the same patience and dedication this cinematic masterpiece was created. 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!
