True Grit
Call Number: DVD PN 1997.2 .T78 2011
Publication Date: 2011
A 14-year-old girl needs a man with true grit to help her bring in the fugitive who killed her father. That she settles on Rooster Cogburn -- a one-eyed, booze-soaked, potbellied U.S. marshal on the downward curve of his career in law enforcement -- is the glorious springboard for all versions of True Grit: the Charles Portis novel, the 1969 western that won an Oscar for John Wayne, and the 2010 Coen brothers adaptation.

The Big Lebowski
Call Number: DVD PN 1995.9 .C55 2003
Publication Date: 1998
Jeff ''The Dude'' Lebowski (Bridges) is the victim of mistaken identity. Thugs break into his apartment in the errant belief that they are accosting Jeff Lebowski, the eccentric millionaire philanthropist, not the laid-back, unemployed Jeff Lebowski. In the aftermath, The Dude seeks restitution from his wealthy namesake. He and his buddies (Goodman and Buscemi) are swept up in a kidnapping plot that quickly spins out of control.
