Jeff Bridges reunited with the Coen brothers in the 2010 Oscar-nominated Western drama, True Grit, based on Charles Portis’ novel of the same name. Seeking revenge for her father’s murder, cantankerous farm girl Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) hires the surly U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (Bridges). Texas Ranger LaBeouf (Matt Damon) joins the unlikely duo in hot pursuit of the murderous Tom Clancy (Josh Brolin) across the western frontier where several vigilantes test their mettle. JMRL sponsors this screening as part of The Big Read.

Saturday 3/8. Free, 2pm. Gordon Avenue Library, 1500 Gordon Ave. 296-5544.
