I'm going to see True Grit tonight and am so excited. The original (with John Wayne) is fantastic, but I have faith that Jeff Bridges will be a great Rooster Cogburn too. And the actress who plays Mattie Ross is supposed to be outstanding.
If you haven't ever seen the 1969 version (for which Wayne won his lone Oscar), rent it before seeing the new Coen brothers'.
In downtown Los Angeles, years ago, we met while working as editorial assistants at the Los Angeles Times. Today, we're still young, thirsty female journalists, on various paths of life (Chau in Silver Lake and Leslie in Brooklyn), here to deliver our best finds from this city and beyond, via the BEAT of young los angeles. Get comfortable and stay a while. Check back often!
