It’s often said that films by the Coen brothers are easy to recognize. In the past few decades they’ve built up a world of their own, with sympathetic idiots who are always taking the wrong decisions playing the lead roles. But none of that applies in True Grit. Rightly nominated for 10 Oscars, it’s a classical Western from a genre that Hollywood has almost forgotten about. All the Western elements are there, although with the big difference that the story is told through the eyes of a young girl. True Grit is a homage to the classical Western, that highlights aspects like justice, revenge and innocence.
