Mother and Child

     This is a tale seemingly like no other. It starts of as four separate stories that intertwine in the end. The writing is creative and original and the storyline unique. These qualities seem like a rarity in Hollywood today but it is true for this film. If you stick with this movie you’ll like it I guarantee. 

      The cast is outstanding and includes, Annette Bening, Naomi Watts and Samuel L. Jackson. They all play their perspective roles to near flawless perfection and are outstanding individual talents to boost. Their talents are not wasted in this powerful drama. It is riveting and unforgettable and will have you talking at the water cooler the next day at work. 

       This two hour and five minute drama is a touching and telling piece. It keeps you focused the entire film and does not leave you much room to dawdle. If you have not heard of this film then don’t be surprised, neither have I until I rented it from the Redbox last night. The aforementioned cast drew me in within a heartbeat and convinced me to rent this film. Rent it today and decide for yourself if you like it or not.

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!
