The Foundations can serenade you today
After mentioning (I won't say complain) that the movie missed all the dramatic set-ups in my Renie Lake book, I'm perched on the brink of taking out an entire chapter that once was crucial to the dramatic arc. What's my rationale? It was cheesy storytelling. It was easy and predictable and obviously worked.
The lesson to be learned is that you can never go far wrong with cheesy storytelling if it's done well. Apparently I'm unable to learn from myself!
