My Blueberry Nights

I love this movie for it’s creative name and the analogy that this title is a elusion to. The aforementioned label refers to the to the opening setting the travel log like journey initially departs from.  A cute young brunette named Lizzy walks into poorly patronized New York City diner and meets a handsome beau (Jude Law). He offers her a piece of his homemade blueberry pie and each night tells her a different yarn that all are keys to his heart. The story starts from there.

This wonderful film sees young Lizzy (Norah Jones) venture out to find herself across the settings and muliple jobs n that time span. She eventuly is befriended by a calculating gambler named (Leslie) and the take a Thelma And Louise like journey from Memphis to Las Vegas and the adventure continues. 

The screenplay in this movie is well written. The acting is top notch and the rest of it ain’t bad either. I must say however I wasn’t overly impressed. My jaw never hit the floor, I did not feel the need to stand and  applaud but most Important I shall not throw roses at the stage. For something about this film didn’t seem totally worthy. While I can’t quite put my finger on it or remove thus said finger from the damn for fear of it flooding me with  negativities and scorn. 

I dedicate this review to one of my youngest but most vocal supporters.  For like the main character of this flick she is charming and effervescent.  While she gets an A in my book of fans and people in general. This film on the other hand only gets a ‘B”. This drama works best when the  spotlight is focused on Ms. Jones. Fortunately for the audience this sentiment is true for most of the duration of this 93 minute feature film.

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!
