True Grit

True Grit

Synopsis: When a young girl's father is murdered by a notorious coward, she hires a U.S. marshal to track down his killer.

Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and rising star Hailee Steinfeld shine in this western adventure. Headstrong Mattie Ross(Stenfeld), hires an aged marshal, Rooster Cogburn(Bridges), to assist her in the pursuit of her father's killer, Tom Chaney(Brolin). LaBoeuf(Damon), also in pursuit of Chaney, stands out as Rooster's argumentative companion. Unfortunately, this movie loses points for its strange/bad ending. Despite the ending, this Academy Award nominated film stands on its own as a fresh new version of the original 1969 True Grit.
