True Grit storming UK box office
This bodes well for the western as a whole - only a year ago critics were saying that the Coen's take on True Grit would be a flop, that there was no longer an audience for films like this, that only children went to the cinema. However an independent cinema survey has reported a spike in attendances by patrons over thirty years of age.
Maybe adults don't really go to the cinema these days because there are very few films we really want to see. Maybe if more movies like True Grit were produced then we'd be flooding the cinemas on a regular basis. Time to put away the CGI and reintroduce the acting and writing methinks.
Link - a horse opera renaissance ?
