Dear Ms. Lane,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite movies that you played in were Under the Tuscan Sun and Trumbo. In Under the Tuscan Sun, I enjoyed the plot of the movie about Frances Mayes, who is a writer who decides to go on a vacation to Tuscany, Italy after her husband had cheated on her and feeling like a new change. In the movie I liked on how it had a comedy and a great message about making new friends. I thought you did an excellent job portraying Frances Mayes because I liked on how you made her have great traits like working on a goal to find new friends when she goes through a struggle. Another movie that I enjoyed watching was Trumbo. In November 2015, I saw Trumbo at a movie theater in Michigan and I enjoyed it. Trumbo is a great biopic movie because it did a great job explaining what it was like during the Red Scare era in the entertainment industry and how Dalton Trumbo worked hard to overcome his struggle with keeping his family together, being attacked by the news media including the entertainment industries along with some of his former friends due to his different beliefs. Ms. Lane, I thought you did an excellent job playing Ms. Cleo Fincher Trumbo because I liked on how you made Ms. Trumbo have great traits like not giving up on her husband Trumbo when he struggles, helping give advice to Trumbo to be supportive of his family while working o his goal to continue to write, and many others.
Your role in Trumbo motivates me to continue my interest in learning American History. In history what I like to learn is the need to make Civil Rights stronger, protect the environment from pollution, have government reform to reduce corruption, have checks and balances to help protect people’s civil liberties from being violated while reduce crime, and many others. Another thing that I like to learn in history is learning how famous people or minorities, women, and people with disabilities who work hard to make a great difference with their ideas, activism, or different roles on making a difference in society and learn how they make a great impact. Trumbo got me very interested in learning more about Dalton Trumbo’s life and his film success. Also the movie had a great message on me about the need to protect freedom of speech from being taken away, the need not to repeat the same mistakes in the past like the Red Scare, and learn how the entertainment industry is important to society. Also I truly appreciate your activism on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination. Ms. Lane, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to support civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability.
Ms. Lane, I believe that you made a great difference in acting. You did such an excellent job making Under the Tuscan Sun and Trumbo great movies. Also I really believe that you do such a great job making biopic movies great to watch and learn history. You have inspired me to continue being motivated to learn more history and learn how famous people or people who are different can make a great impact on society or an event or in history. Here is a picture of me as a gift to you for inspiring me. Also here is $5 as a gift for you to use to donate to the theater to help continue to fund the arts. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job in acting with making movies great, and inspiring me. I wish you well on your Broadway show and to continue to make movies great to watch.
