Newsies!

Okay, so I was in my class (the one that helps you start a business) and while the teacher was talking to one of the girls in my class, I got a chance to talk to Haley. (A very nice girl) It is kind of funny because she looks just like Amanda, except with red hair, she even had braces. Anyways, we were talking about things we liked and stuff like that, and we got on movies. I brought something up about The Prestige, and said something about Christian Bale. (If anybody really knows me, they know how much I love Christian Bale) She was like "You like Christian Bale?" Of course I said "YES!" So she started talking about this movie called Newsies. She was telling me about how it had Christian Bale when he was 17 years old. And earlier we had already talked about how we both liked musicals, so she went to tell me it was a musical and Christian Bale sang and danced, and it was funny to see him in all these serious movies. As soon as she said that, I knew I had to see it! I simply thanked her and started heading for the car.

A couple days later my mom and I went to the library. I looked for it, but it was checked out, so I put it on hold. After that we went to another library , and of course I looked for it there, and they had it! I was so happy! The day we did all this was the day after my allergy testing and I was still kind of dizzy, so mom let me lay on the couch and watch it when we got home. I loved it!
The whole movie is about orphans and/or runaways who buy and sell newspapers. Well the person who owns the newspaper company raises the prices, so they cannot pay for them. So devliery boys get angry and go on strike. All of them! Which since this was New York there were a lot of orphans and/or runaways. I can't tell you anything else except you should watch it because it is a very good movie! (And if you do watch it and do not know who Christian Bale is, he is Jack Kelly (Cowboy.)
