About True Grit
After her father is shot dead by Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) becomes determined to bring the coward to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him - over his objections - to hunt down Chaney. Her father's blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man. True Grit is the second adaptation of Charles Portis' 1968 novel of the same name – this time written and directed by the Coen brothers.
