TRUE GRIT by Ethan Coen and Joel Coen


true grit- embitterment level - disappointment level
To avenge the murder of her father, 14 year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) hires U.S. Marshal (and drunkard) Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) and vain Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) who is on the trail of the same man for a murder committed in Texas. Against their resistance, Mattie joins them on their hunt which leads them into the wilderness of Indian territory.

True Grit is the Coen brother’s first attempt at a “true” western after western-influenced No Country For Old Men – and at their first shot they prove that the western, despite many claims to the contrary, is still very much alive.
Violent, gritty, with just the right touch of humor, great performances and richness of language, True Grit is a rare case of a remake (True Grit with John Wayne) – or recreation (based on the Charles Portis novel True Grit) – the world has actually been waiting for.
