True Grit

Coen brothers (dir), 2011, 111m

A teenage girl sets out to avenge her father's murder. In the hands of the expert directors, a genre stereotype becomes a beautifully shot and scripted treat. The larger than life characters, while retaining the mannerisms and style of the mythologized western, are real enough, and the shootouts are more than collapsing manikins.
