True Grit is a 1969 American Western film written by Marguerite Roberts and directed by Henry Hathaway. It is the first adaptation of Charles Portis' 1968 novel True Grit. John Wayne stars as U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn and won his only Academy Award for his performance in this film. Wayne reprised his role as Cogburn in the 1975 sequel Rooster Cogburn.
Little Miss Sunshine-watched with Clearplay-I don't think I laughed once during this movie. I love dark and dry comedies (such as Wes Anderson, obviously) but this wasn't even close to funny, or quirky, or anything, really. Just disturbing and so, so, so crude. A very emotionless, empty film. 4 out of 10 stars.
