Boys Don't Cry

This is one of those few movies you cannot miss. It is a true story that isn’t predictable. When you walk away from the theater after this movie you will not be disappointed. You will not wonder what scenes were real or fake and you will not question how much they changed the real story to make it into a movie. It is believable from start to finish. It is intelligent, fun and believable you will walk away satisfied, shocked, a little sad and totally amazed at the performances. The performances are crisp and intelligent thought-out the movie. You will find yourself cheering for the main character whether you are male or female and you will walk away a little more in touch with you masculine or feminine side. I had to remind myself several times though out the movie that the main character was in fact female. She managed to bond with you from the beginning. I found myself cheering for her to get the girl, fool the others and win the bar fight. This is a movie that is not to be missed and a sure-fire movie to be studied in various future psychology classes. The violence, sex, and nudity in this film are at times graphic but appropriate to understand the process this girl went through and the love she shared for her girlfriend. This is a movie of true love, bravery, believability and the desire for all of us to get in touch with the man or women within us all. 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!
