Have you heard of the new Coen brothers’ movie True Grit? It is airing on TCM right now… the old version that is, with John Wayne and a young actress that reminds me of Justin Bieber.
When I saw the preview for the Coen brothers movie I was excited, assuming that we should be prepared for another Coen originals. Now, we know better. The 1969 True Grit was already an adaptation of a Charles Portis novel.
But the Coen brothers are big boys, and I expect nothing less than an exceptional movie. Actually, Ethan Coen said that their version will be a more faithful adaptation of the novel because it assumes the little girl’s perspective, which sounds interesting already.
The original True Grit earned John Wayne his only Academy Award.
