The Way, Way Back

This slow moving drama never quite grabbed my interest. Despite the magnificent cast of Steve Carrel, Toni Collette, and Sam Rockwell and more this slow moving drama never got me interested. The store centers on Duncan a 14-year-old boy who is shy and tortured by his mother and newly designated stepfather. Despite this “family” he manages to catch the eye of a cute young blonde in the neighborhood names Susanna. (sorry Beach Boys) she is palyed brillintley by AnnaSophia Robb and is the only half decent part of this AWFUL drama. If you want to be dulled to sleep in the time span of 103 minutes I suggest this film. If you want to be entertained and stimulated I suggest palying in traffic on I-95 the secned would at least keep you moving. The only palce I want to move after seeing this film is back to bed. Sam Rockwell and Maya Rudulof also star. Grade D (for dull) Robb’s performance prevents this from being an F!

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!
