This is a good remake of the classical film by Henry Hathaway, with John Wayne, in 1969. This new version is slightly more focused on the point of view of the young girl Mattie Ross, fantastically played by Hailee Steinfeld, but some parts, even the conversations, are almost an exact copy of the old version although updated to the current cinema. Jeff Bridges makes simply wonderful work and he is without a doubt in the best moment of his career. Matt Damon and Josh Brolin work very correctly as well. The atmosphere is very well captured with good details of the old typical westerns and good photography, but at the same time well seasoned with modern ingredients, like the real dirtiness and the explicit violence of the last quarter of the XIXth century in those places. A good film by the Coens.
My score: 8 (out of 10)
