Sorry, I have to dissent from True Grit's
fans. This is not a film that anyone who loves our country could much admire. (But I didn't much care for the original John Wayne version, either, which was a kind of caricature of Wayne.) Since my reasoning involves a kind of a plot spoiler, I'll put that in the comments below. The Coen brothers are superb filmmakers, but their political attitudes are predictable.
