The First Great Movie Of 2011

I saw the Coen brothers latest movie True Grit last night.  WOW... what an excellent film.  Their adaptation is much closer to the book and follows the protagonist Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) faithfully.   I enjoyed Mattie's plucky spirit,  and the language style used by the actors.  The most striking was the way the film incorporated the natural surroundings to convey the mood of the film. I don't want to spoil it for you, just go see True Grit.  For an in-depth critique read David Carr's review for the NYT.
