True Grit
Year Released: 2010
Director: Joel and Ethan Coen

The 2010 remake of True Grit is just as compelling as the original. The Coen brother’s interpretation received mass amounts of critical acclaim including 10 Academy Award nominations.

Jeff Bridges and Hailee Seinfeld star in the film alongside Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper. According to Ethan Coen, this adaptation is more faithful to the book than its 1969 counterpart. This largely due to the greater focus on Mattie Ross, Seinfeld’s character who is out to seek revenge for her father’s death.
