To sum up the plot of this movie in just one paragraph would be impossible. The movie while only one hour and twenty-eight minutes long was complicated, complex, and amazing. It shows how small on trailer park can be and it shows at the same time how large one can be as well. Ok, Ok, here is the plot in a nutshell. Two teenage girls live in some small trailer park town in New Mexico. Their lives are thrown for a loop when a new resident arrives. The hot young boy named simply Mookie (Justin Long) is simply that hot. Both fall for him instantly and bring angst to a strong friendship. The acting is excellent and the writing well done. Nobody in known by anything more than simply his or her first name in this picture and there are no need for last names in this independent film. The film won three smaller awards for the acting and directing in this film. The two leading ladies shared the honor of Best Actress and the director got a directing award. The father won an award too. This film is one that should be discussed in detail with friends. It is a book club like script and deserves to be studied in detail. One viewing of this amazing film my not be enough. It is as I said before complicated and complex. Watch it with someone you love. 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!
