The Forger

I am wide-awake at 4 am and I need something to kill time. As a result I find this film on Pay-Per-View. It is “Free Film Day” so I choose this title. At the heart of this film is a dying teenage boy. His father an Art Thief manages to get out of jail in order to be with his progeny in his final days. The ticket for an early parole to rob an art museum of a classic Monet and forge it for a client. So he and his father enlist the aid of the dying teenage boy to pull “One Last Heist”. This 92-minute film is slow at times and touching at others. Phillip Martin directs John Travolta, Christopher Plummer, and Tye Sheridan in the heist film. Whether or not you enjoy this film is up to you. It kept me awake in the pre dawn hours but some critics may find it hard to stomach. The “R” rating is moslty for language and content. This matches the feel of the film and describes the plot exactly. Grade C (for Con)

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!
