in the pictures: true grit

Have you seen True Grit?  I saw it with Mr. Lovely over the holidays, and I have to say:  I was totally enthralled.  Having never seen the original, I didn’t know what to expect.  But I thought it was so beautiful for so many reasons, not the least of which is that it reminded me (somewhat loosely) of my childhood and growing up a “country kid.”  I wanted to jump right into that film, onto a horse, and ride off into the distance with Mattie Ross and Rooster Cogburn.

If you haven’t seen it, put it at the top of your to-do list.  And in the meantime, check out my little taste of what Mattie might wear if she was around today.  xoxo

    I LOVED True Grit! It was one of my absolute favorite films of 2010 (it’s a very close second to The King’s Speech.) The biggest sin of the Golden Globes was that it was completely ignored, but I’m so glad that it got the recognition it deserved in the Oscar noms- especially the acting nod for Hailee Steinfeld, who blew my mind. And I love your modern update 🙂

    It was so great, right?! I didn’t want it to end. @Jani — we were trying to talk Dad into going with us, but the last movie he saw in a theatre was Tombstone. I think he wants to keep it that way. 🙂
