I went to see the Coen Brothers take on True Grit yesterday. As a fan of John Wayne I was a bit apprehensive about going to see but I didn't need to be.
Apparently the intention was to make a film of the book, not to remake the original film.
I can wholeheartedly recommend going to see this. It's a very different film and stands well on it's own without reference to the original.
I fear no woman: except my wife, her sister and their mother!
