“True Grit” on TCM

John Wayne in True Grit

John Wayne in "True Grit" (1969)

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.
