True Grit: What do you think of star Hailee Steinfeld?

Our featured book this week is True Grit by Charles Portis.

The new movie (who's seen it) drew attention to this classic title, and some say star Hailee Steinfeld would have been the perfect Katniss in the Hunger Games films. (The honor went to Jennifer Lawrence last week.)

Did you guys see the movie? What did you think of Hailee as a kick-butt leading woman?

I think that she did very well, and we will see a great deal more from her in the future.

I think she would've been an AWESOME Katniss.

Melissa Walker said...

Yes, I was thinking Katniss as I watched TRUE GRIT. I'm excited that Suzanne Collins is so supportive of the Jennifer casting though, so I'm open minded about it. Still, great things to come from Hailee!
