True Grit—-Punishment comes one way or another.
Written and Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen
Based on the novel by Charles Portis
The Coens make their first western movie and as usual they deliver another great movie. Jeff Bridges is mesmerizing as Rooster Cogburn and the debut performance of Hailee Steinfeld which earned her an Academy Award Nomination. The story is about a young girl hiring a man with “True Grit” who will help bring her fathers killer to justice. Jeff Bridges has more than enough grit and displays it throughout the movie. There is plenty of action, surrounded by an excellent story written by Charles Portis. Truly amazing.
