"TrueGrit" Movie Based on a Book
LaBoeuf. I just learned that the double-barreled success of this Coen brother's remake must be attributed to the enduring literary brilliance of an 1968 novelist. I won't promise to read the book by Charles Portis like Mr. Weissand recommends, but it is another proof that the book is always better than the movie. And they both make a timely reference for us during this 150th year since the Civil War.
