The latest film from the Cohen Brothers opens on December 25th, and it looks like they’ll have another hit on their hands. True Grit, a novel by Charles Portis first published in 1968, is the tale of a young girl tracking down her father’s murderer.
According to Ethan Coen, the new movie adaptation will be more faithful to the original book than the 1969 version starring John Wayne. With a cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin, expectations for the new film are high. Now might be the time to check out True Grit and read the original so you’ll be ready to make your own comparisons!
