The girls treated me to a movie yesterday (good thing, I about passed out when I saw how expensive tickets are now. I'm used to the free kid's movies at the Garland) We saw "True Grit" and it was great!
Being an old, I read the book and saw the original movie back in the 70s, and this remake is outstanding. The acting is great and the script stays close to the book's tone (read the book, it's good too!) The girl who plays Mattie is excellent and of course Jeff Bridges is awesome.
