Words of wisdom such as “You must pay for everything in this world, one way and another. There is nothing free except the grace of God.” True Grit makes its triumphant return to Little Rock with a free showing at Movies in the Park at Riverfest Amphitheatre. The amphitheatre opens an hour before the film showing which is at sundown. If you are unsure what the Coen Brothers-directed film is about then you haven’t been paying attention for the last year. Just go watch it.
