young Bale

It's 1899 New York City. Titans like Joseph Pulitzer (Robert Duvall) and William Randolph Hearst control information and the news. Jack Kelly (Christian Bale) is a street-smart leader of the newsies, boys who hawk papers on the streets. David Jacobs (David Moscow) and his younger brother are new to the trade. When the papers' price is raised, the boys decide to strike. Bryan Denton (Bill Pullman) is a sympathetic reporter. Snyder (Kevin Tighe) is the corrupt warden of the Refuge orphanage.

This is a Disney song and dance musical. That's not really the best part unless you're a fan of the genre. This has Bale as a compelling young actor. He has the power to drive this film. It reminds of Annie but not as fun or as compelling. None of the songs are memorable but it has its appeal.

Didn't Get Noticed That Much

I really like this musical. It was pretty much ignored when it came out. With Disney at the helm, it had a reasonable audience. It is the story of newsboys during hard times, trying to make a few bucks peddling their papers, when the bosses, like Joseph Pulitzer, couldn't care less about them and their lives. Not only are they not respected, the bosses begin to raise the prices on the papers (papes) they sell, giving them much less profit. They live on a delicate balance because they have to sell every paper or they are stuck for the cost of the unsold ones. This leads talk of unionizing. Unionizing at this time in America was seen as communism and this led to some head bashing. There are some great songs in this film, and some outstanding choreography. One current development that has boosted this movie is the fact that there is now a Broadway production that has had tremendous popularity. People who never saw this film are now watching it.

An AMAZING musical for all ages!

Twirls, Leaps, and Tap Dancing Boys? Such a miraculous sight can be watched in the movie Newsies (directed by Kenny Ortega) released by Disney in 1992. The movie centers in 1899 New York, when kids (the Newsies) would sell newspapers to make a living. The story follows Jack Kelly (Christian Bale), and his closest comrade, David Jacobs (David Moscow), who lead the Newsies in a strike against Joseph Pulitzer (Robert Duvall) who had raised the cost of newspapers.

Throughout the movie, scenes filled with amazing choreography and catchy songs get stuck in you head all day. Although this musical has been entertaining, it also contains some historical accuracy. In the movie, Jack Kelly plays the leader of the Newsies. In reality, the leader of the Newsies was named Kid Blink because the boy would wear an eye-patch. This character is seen sporadically thought the movie, maintaining the real life person of Kid Blink involved in the strike.

Theatre is always looking for drama to add, and displaying Pulitzer as the "mean, selfish and prideful" man conveyed the audience to be interested in the overall plot of Newsies. In real life, Pulitzer started off as this character, but later sided with unions during many strikes, and compromised with the Newsies.

Overall, this movie was highly entertaining and hilarious to watch. The actors with all the dancing and singing gave us the intricate show of the Newsies.
