Ryan Gossling is A young hot shot attorney who is compelled to take a seemingly easy case where the suspect (Anthony Hopkins) Actually signs a confession. When the case turns out to be not at all slam dunk drama ensues and tension picks up from there. 
Anthony Hopkins is amazing in this slowly building drama that never really peaks your interest until the very end. Ryan Gosling plays a quickly rising yet young naive attorney who has no idea what he’s getting into when he’s more or less forced to take this case. 

This is definitely a movie that can be criticized by the inexperienced movie watcher. It seem to barley hold your interest until the end when it throws a wrench in the work. You may want to take a couple of no doze in the first three quarters of this movie. You will hope and hope that it gets better by the end and it does. While in this day and age of shoot-em up blow-em up action flicks that start off sprinting and never let up you may not like this old fashioned thriller. Fracture is like the movies of old it is slow and boring but is a must see never the less. 

There are no peaks through out most of this movie. it is mundane at parts but is a must watch none the less. While the plot can’t really be described without giving a way the jest of the movie you actually see the main character shoot his wife. You spend most of the movie wondering why the hell don’t you just don’t just get up and leave. Get up and leave you should not. The last twenty minutes is nail biting in the least and compelling at the most. The viewer must learn patience when nothing really seems to go anywhere until the very end. 

           Fracture is a classic example of great store telling. The story is not one for the untrained watcher though. it must be taken in slowly and methodically. but is nevertheless worth stay with until the very end.

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!
