True Grit

True Grit

You've seen the original — now it's time to see it through the eyes of the Coen brothers. One of last year's best films, True Grit ($25) returned to the novel for its inspiration, and in doing so wrangled in no less than 10 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and a second straight Best Actor nod for Jeff Bridges. Fun fact: if Bridges had nabbed his second Oscar in a row, it would have marked only the second time that two actors (Bridges and Wayne) won Oscars for playing the same character, the first being Brando and De Niro for their portrails of Vito Corleone in The Godfather series.
