True Grit

On a trip to buy ponies, Frank Ross is shot dead by Tom Chaney, one of his own workers, for a horse, $150 cash,and two Californian gold pieces. When Ross’s unusually single-minded fourteen-year-old daughter Mattie arrives to claim his body, she discovers that the authorities are doing nothing to find Chaney. Then she hears of Rooster – a man, she’s told, who has grit – and convinces him to join her in a quest into dark, dangerous Indian territory to hunt Chaney down and avenge her father’s murder …

First brought to the big screen in a classic 1969 western starring John Wayne, True Grit is now a major motion picture by the Coen brothers, starring Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin.
