Movie: True Grit
Like/Don't Like: Liked very much
I hesitated watching this movie because I am a delicate flower. I don't like violence, particularly gun violence, the kind that is often found in westerns. But several people have said that I could handle it and that I would like it in the end. I am happy to report that they were right on both counts, although I had to avert my eyes several times.
Thinking back, I really loved everything about it (ok, except for the shooting). It's definitely a whole package film. The acting was sensational (I'm a little upset now that Hailee Steinfeld isn't playing Katniss - as originally rumored) the score was perfect, and I loved the stylized dialogue. Everyone, even the drunks, spoke with crisp drawn out sentences. No contractions. It somehow added a sense of importance to the story. As soon as it was over I wanted to watch it again.
