Some Kind Of Kneeler (True Grit)

Leave a comment

The 2010 version of True Grit virtually washed the Christian faith of Mattie Ross out of the story, reducing it to something of a background theme to the story.
The 1969 version retained the somewhat belligerent tone of Mattie Ross’ gritty Presbyterianism.
An example of which is demonstrated in another of the generally feisty exchanges between Mattie Ross and LaBoeuf.

LaBoeuf: “I was raised in the Episcopal Church myself.”
Mattie: “I figured you for some kind of kneeler.”
