True Grit

Punishment comes one way or another


True Grit
After her dad is killed by one of his workers, his 14 year old daughter discovers that the authorities have no intention of hunting down his killer. So she hires a rather old Marshall with a reputation to track the murderer down. They are joined by a younger Marshall after the same man for different reasons. Together, they journey into the Indian territories for the showdown. The previous filmed version of this famous novel won John Wayne his only Oscar. This version is one of the top contenders for the 2011 Oscars.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconWhile Steinfeld conveys all the necessary pluck as the headstrong Mattie, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and an impressively wizened Barry Pepper all make the most of the opportunities they’re presented by the Coens and, of course, Portis’ eminently quotable turns of phrase.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconWith stronger overall acting, a tighter script, and better production design, True Grit 2010 surpasses its predecessor as the definitive adaptation of the novel and stakes out a place in the hall of fame of American Westerns.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconAs long as it's viewed as a different (and more accurate) version of Portis' novel rather than a remake of the 1969 film, even fans of the latter will probably admire what's been created here.

Tomatometer quote iconGirded by strong performances from Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, and lifted by some of the Coens' most finely tuned, unaffected work, True Grit is a worthy companion to the Charles Portis book.
