Les Miserables

        I just wanted to say don’t judge a book by it’s cover. I am willing to admit that I am a 39-year-old bachelor.  The last picture I saw at this cinaplex was a  ballet. Today I saw an opera. I enjoyed both. 

       Let’s focus on the casting of this film. Anne Hathaway gives a magnificent performance as Fantine. Fantine is a sleltered princess who is expelled from the castle in this story. She faces a new world of harshness and deplorability. Fantine never stops singing however and discovers love in the sewers.

      Another piece of  note worthy casting isthat of Cossete.  Her role is dulefully played by two actresses. The adult version was played well  by Amanda Seyfried. Seyfriend  deserves the early Oscar Buzz she is reciving. 
Newcomer Isabelle Adams plays the younger version of Cossete. Her looks are a perfect mix of a young Dakota Fanning and Seyfried as well. She hits all her high notes and acting cues as well. 

           Hugh Jackman is the male lead here. He tore the big screen apart asWolverine in the X -Men saga and his career at the start of the century.  He has never looked back. Jackman plays the handsome beast opposite two stunning cinematic scarlet. One plays his wife the other his  daughter.  (Nice job Hugh!) 

This film never seemed to be 157 minutes long. The packed out audience applauded at the end. I  recommend this movie to everyone. Ladies will love it because it’s an opera and men will not complain because their girlfriends will be “grateful” when they get home! 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                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!
