Oh, so good. If you haven’t seen this yet, go see it. And if you haven’t seen it because you don’t like Westerns…GO SEE IT!
I haven’t read the book nor have I seen the John Wayne version (though my parents assure me this version is far superior), it’s so good. The girl deserves her Oscar nomination and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she wins it – despite being in a movie with Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and James Brolin (and not getting her name on the poster), she definitely carries the whole thing. I mean, Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and James Brolin are all their usual good actor selves, but she’s the glue who holds the film together.
At any rate, it’s a really good movie. Really, really good.
