The Story In Brief
The latest film from the Coen brothers, ‘True Grit’ is a new adaptation based on the 1968 novel by Charles Portis.
Staring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon ‘True Grit’ tells the story of a fourteen-year-old girl, whose father is murdered by the coward Tom Chaney.
Following the murder of her father, the 14-year-old – Mattie Ross – sets out to capture the killer. To do so she enlists the help of the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a certain Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn and insists on accompanying him on the hunt.
Rooster’s drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not bring her much comfort but after some negotiation the unlikely pair set off into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes.
