Tara Road

This is a coming of age drama about two middle-aged women who each find their husbands are being unfaithful to them. They both decide to get away from it all and exchange lives. One lives in America, the other Ireland. They switch lives with one another and literally get away from it all. They are of coarse instantly liked by one another’s friends and family and bond quickly to their perspective’s foreign country. Andie Mac Dowell and Olivia Williams are two extraordinary actresses in one amazing script. The plethora of emotions felt in this movie is rare in today’s cinema. The gamut of characters is quite vast. Each actor brings out their own qualities both positive and negative into their perspective roles. Young or old, man or woman, good or bad everyone in this movie seems to be very perplex. I felt as if I knew many of these people personally. If I hadn’t meet them I wanted to. The character range was intense. The only complaint I had about this movie is the plot at times was a little to in-depth. The pacing was inconsistent and the movie dragged on a little in the end. I found my mind wandering for a while away from this otherwise wonderful film. All in all it was a movie worth renting. I enjoyed it immensely and will recommend it to any woman I know. No offence guys, but men may find it a little to touchy feely for their fine tuned masculine demeanor. 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!
