Length: 110 minutes
MPAA Rating: PG-13 for some intense sequences of western violence including disturbing images
Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, this is the richly satisfying, highly entertaining Coen brothers' remake of the 1969 John Wayne star vehicle. It's a yarn set in the Old West where bounty hunters ride out of the frontier town of Fort Smith, Ark., to track down a killer in Indian Territory wilderness. The new film is a faithful adaptation of Charles Portis' splendid novel, which means that much of the story is seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl (well-played by newcomer Hailee Steinfeld). Jeff Bridges gives his own twist to the crucial role of federal marshal Rooster Cogburn.
