True Grit, and Animal Rights

Paramount Pictures

Wesley J. Smith reviews True Grit, Academy Award nominee for Best Picture, making the sage observation that while the movie stealer in the original was John Wayne, the movie stealer in the remake is Hailee Steinfield, the female lead. More than that, Smith notes that the film raises a moral issue that undoubtedly will get lots of comments: a horse is ridden to death to save a human life. Is that defensible?

To the animal rights crowd, maybe not. Fortunately, the film takes another view.
