SATUR­DAY TRUE GRIT

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, SBS ★★★★

An ex­em­plary new adap­ta­tion of the clas­sic Charles Por­tis novel, True Grit sees the Coen broth­ers dou­bling back to­wards some fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory. Not quite No Coun­try For Old Men, more No Coun­try for a Young Woman. And a world away from the corny John Wayne ver­sion of yes­ter­year. The story told here is that of a wild west re­venge saga with a dif­fer­ence – the dif­fer­ence be­ing that it is a 14-year-old girl, Mat­tie Ross (Hailee Ste­in­feld) look­ing to square up the mur­der of her fa­ther in the 1870s. Jeff Bridges and Matt Da­mon co-star.
