|Rooster Cogburn: That didn't pan out.|
Jeff Bridges doesn't play a character- he inhabits the body of another person. Think about how few actors do that. Fine actors are a rarity, like a Brando or a Rod Steiger. Bridges is one among the best.
Yes, the supporting cast is terrific (Hailee Steinfeld as the 14-year-old headstrong Mattie Ross is a standout as well as Josh Brolin), but we wait for Bridges to anchor, to move and to make us laugh.
Don't miss this one.
