True Grit

20140104-233934.jpg Last night, we watched True Grit at last and I was immediately transfixed. I fell in love with the characters, the script, the cinematography and the tone was unmistakably Coenesque. It has made me want to rewatch all the Coen brother films I’ve already seen and catch all those I haven’t got to yet. It also makes me want to read all of Charles Portis’s books as it was his novel that the film was adapted from. Like I need any more books to read!

A special mention must go to Hailee Steinfield who deserves every single accolade for her portrayal of the spunky 14 year old Mattie who really did have true grit. She blew me away.

Time just gets away from us.
