    Joel and Ethan Coen's "True Grit," Featuring Score by Carter Burwell, Now Available on Blu-Ray and DVD

    True Grit—Joel and Ethan Coen's 2010 film adaptation of the 1968 Charles Portis novel, starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper, and Hailee Steinfeld—is out now on DVD and in a two-disc Blu-Ray/DVD package. For more information, visit truegritmovie.com.

    For the film's soundtrack, available on Nonesuch Records, composer Carter Burwell looked to 19th-century hymns for inspiration. The album includes 20 short original works by Burwell, featuring excerpts from the gospel hymns “Hold to God’s Unchanging Hand," “What a Friend We Have in Jesus," “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms," “Talk About Suffering," and “The Glory-Land Way." Digital versions of the album, including the free MP3s that come with  Nonesuch Store orders of the CD, contain a bonus track: Iris DeMent’s rendition of “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms,” which plays during the film’s closing credits. The Los Angeles Times says the score works "equally well for big-screen vistas and solitary contemplation."

    To pick up a copy of the soundtrack, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the complete album plus Iris DeMent's performance of the hymn "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms," at checkout.
