True Grit

Took in at Riverview Theater last night True Grit – 10 Academy nominations. Must try to muster “true grit” for blogging as administrator daughter Anastasia insists. Enjoyed the movie – a lot of western themes part of mythology regarding the American West – guns blazing with rugged individualism displayed, amidst lonesome vistas.  Western reality, as I recall in a seminar setting with my students, is rather complex determining  what is stereotype and what is fact.
