True Grit is the final movie we’re considering as part of our series on the films of Joel and Ethan Coen. Throughout the series, we’ve placed a handful of their movies within an Old Testament/New Testament framework. Are Jeff Bridges' Rooster and Hailee Steinfeld's Mattie tools of God’s justice, as righteously represented by the law in the Old Testament? Or are they seeking something more akin to cold-blooded revenge? Might they discover a different path on this particular journey?
TC's Josh Larsen makes his case in the video. You can make yours at our online Movie Club discussion: 2 pm Central, March 27. Sign up here to receive an invite.
