Joel and Ethan Coen are back with the remake of the 1969 western classic True Grit. The film has been getting a ton of positive buzz lately. With great performances from the entire cast as well as the always perfect directing from the Coen brothers, the film is sure to be an Oscar contender. The film stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and new comer Hailee Steinfeld who are all said to give brilliant performances.
The full synopsis of the film according to Shockya is as follows:
Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with “true grit,” Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her “grit” tested
