Everybody’s Fine

           A recently widowed father named Frank Goode (Robert De Niro) is expecting his four children home for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. When nobody comes to visit he travels out to four unique destinations to visit them. He does in his own style against doctor’s orders and all advice. In doing so he discovers the truth along the way. 

That is the summary of this powerful drama. The movie is well written, intense and perfectly acted. It has an all-star cast and a great director. The aforementioned cast consists of Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell, and Drew Barrymore. It is co–written and directed by the same man, adding flavor to this already flavorful film. 

The film is slow but well paced. It moves just as you would expect such a movie to move. The film is about one man finding out more about himself and that usually is a slow moving process. Do not let that discourage you from renting this film. It is excellent and well written. You cannot go wrong with such a fabulous cast. 
This is definitely a film to see twice.  You will get more out of it the second time around. You will enjoy it the first time nonetheless. Be careful however this is not a film to be taken lightly. It is amazing in it concept and awe-inspiring in its whole.

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!
