To Kill a Mockingbird

This is a film adaption that tells a story of prejudice, ignorance and the lessons we learn in life. While it is one of my Lawyer Reviews of the Week it is really a film about a particular young daughter. The movie is more or less seen from her point of view, with is filmed with her as the main character and the rest of the people whom inhabit this small town more or less center around her.

     That is the way Harper Lee’s best selling, Pulitzer Prize winning, novel is written and that is the mood and emotion the writers of this remarkable film capture the award winning author feelings so eloquently. The film is poignant, thought provoking and unmistakably unforgettable. It true is a classical drama.

     This movie will stick with me for a long, long, time. I may even like the devote of this entire string of reviews attempt to read the book as I’m sure she has read. I admit however I have very little patience when it comes to reading entire novels as I’m sure many people do. In this case I may make an exception. My sister is an English teacher I’m willing to bet she’d be more than happy to buy this classic piece of literature for me to read and capture the beauty of it’s majesty in the form of a paperback adventure.

     As per the film it is perfectly written, astonishingly  well scored and magnificently directed.  I do believe I will add more “older” films to my Netflix queue and thus add them to my future blogspot reviews. To prove my point All The President’s  Men. Is sitting on my desktop just waiting to be viewed one  morning in the near future. While it was not made before I was born it is a classic film nonetheless and will expand the horizons of my already vast film viewing pleasures.

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!
