True Grit

In this gritty gunslinger, fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) hires a trigger-happy U.S. Marshal named "Rooster" Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) to help her capture the man (Josh Brolin) who murdered her father. The spunky girl also insists on accompanying the oft-drunk, disreputable lawman. Later, their posse is joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Matt Damon), who has his own reasons for tracking Chaney.
