ANGELIKA’S NOTE

10-time Academy Award nominated TRUE GRIT is a finely tuned western from the brilliant minds of filmmaking duo Joel and Ethan Coen (THE BIG LEBOWSKI, FARGO). Rated an impressive 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, it follows a stubborn teenager who enlists the help of a tough U.S. Marshal to track down her father's murderer. Bolstered by brilliant performances from Jeff Bridges (THE BIG LEBOWSKI, HELL OR HIGH WATER), Matt Damon (GOOD WILL HUNTING, THE MARTIAN), Josh Brolin (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN) and a young Hailee Steinfeld in her feature debut, Guardian raves, "The old-school American western was not dead, it seems. It was just playing possum, waiting for the Coens to come along and rouse it."

SYNOPSIS

After an outlaw named Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin) murders her father, feisty 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) hires Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), a boozy, trigger-happy lawman, to help her find Chaney and avenge her father. The bickering duo are not alone in their quest, for a Texas Ranger named LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) is also tracking Chaney for reasons of his own. Together the unlikely trio ventures into hostile territory to dispense some Old West justice.
