Extraordinary Measures

First of all let’s take a look at he cast. Brandon Frazier, Keri Russell and of course Harrison Ford. I mean really who could go wrong with those three as the leading roles. The are all A’s in my book so this movie cant be all that bad. 

Second of all let’s get down to the plot. It is about a father (Frazier) who will do anything to cure his kids of a seemingly untreatable or incurable disease. It is about the wife (Russell) who supports him all the way and it is about the medical expert (Ford) who can cure them. They all three play and important factor in this extraordinary drama. 

This movie is awesome! It is well paced, well acted and perfectly put together. This is definitely a film to write home about. This is a treat to be shared in the break room. I had my hesitations during the film but the movie turned out to be a real charmer. 

               I would surely recommend this movie to a friend. It is fun to watch and a joy to inhale. Don’t miss this one at the Redbox or add it to your Netflix queue. 

                                                                                                                                                                                               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!
