The new sci-fi action drama Elysium convincingly depicts a bleak future in which the world is separated into two classes, where the wealthy get to enjoy the highest standards of health care while the rest are left to fend for themselves under increasingly impersonal, hostile conditions—wait a minute, that sounds pretty much like today.

When it was announced that the Coen Brothers were doing a retake on True Grit, this reviewer was intrigued, since he held the earlier version in very high esteem-and still does. That being said, The Coen Brothers’ adaptation of Charles Portis’ classic western novel turns out to be a beautifully photographed (by Roger Deakins) if slow-moving tale of a determined girl named Mattie Ross who hires the resolutely drunk yet fearless U.S. marshal Rooster Cogburn to bring her father’s killer to swift-and deadly justice. They are joined in this quest through a wintry landscape by Texas ranger LaBoeuf, and the three quarrel and spar, all the while developing some mutual respect enroute to their date with destiny.

For genuine uplift, I direct you to Clint Eastwood’s Invictus, another in a remarkable run of Eastwood films (including Changeling),with an intelligent script from Anthony Peckham (from John Carlin’s book) and an excellent performance from Morgan Freeman as the newly-elected South African president—and former inmate–Nelson Mandela. Facing challenges from a torn nation beset by lingering racial tensions, unemployment and crime, Mandela resolves to unify the nation through—rugby.
