Paper Moon and True Grit

True GritToday’s film festival featured two classic films featuring young, strong, female protagonists: Paper Moon and True Grit. In both of these films, the young female protagonist stares down male protagonists much older and ostensibly much more experienced than she is. I’m not sure why I have a soft spot for iron-willed, steely-eyed young female protagonists, but I clearly do.I love the dialog in True Grit. It’s almost Shakespearean in its rhythms.
