Overview

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) joins an aging U.S. marshal (Jeff Bridges) and another lawman (Matt Damon) in tracking her father's killer into hostile Indian territory in Joel and Ethan Coen's adaptation of Charles Portis' original novel. Sticking more closely to the source material than the 1969 feature adaptation starring Western icon John Wayne, the Coens' TRUE GRIT tells the story from the young girl's perspective, and re-teams the celebrated filmmaking duo with their NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN producing partner Scott Rudin. Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper co-star.

Reviews:
"[O]ne of their most broadly entertaining films yet....[The Coen brothers] worked hard, and successfully, at serving the buoyant novel as well as being true to their own black comic brio." - 12/22/2010 Los Angeles Times


"Joel Coen and Ethan Coen fill the film with self-conscious good humor -- hey, it's the Coen brothers -- and the charmingly old-fashioned locutions of the Charles Portis novel." - 12/24/2010 Wall Street Journal


3.5 star out of 4 -- "The casting is always inspired and exact. The cinematography by Roger Deakins reminds us of the glory that was, and can still be, the Western." - 12/22/2010 Chicago Sun-Times


"[B]oth musically and visually, TRUE GRIT is a parable about good and evil. Only here, the lines between the two are so blurred as to be indistinguishable, making this a true picture of how the West was won or -- depending on your view -- lost." - 12/21/2010 New York Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "TRUE GRIT has sweep and scope and entertainment value to burn..." - 12/22/2010 Washington Post


"Joel and Ethan Coen have pulled off an impressive feat: repurposing a classic film with their idiosyncratic blend of dark, deadpan humor and palpable suspense..." - 12/22/2010 USA Today


"The Coens direct TRUE GRIT with a light touch....It's simultaneously rollicking and grave, alternating moments of fine dark humor with startling violence..." -- Grade: A- - 12/21/2010 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he Coens have crafted a vastly entertaining Wild West show that is memorable in every particular." - 12/21/2010 Rolling Stone


5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]ll credit to Damon, who plays down the Texan's vanity and braggadocio, leaving just enough of it in evidence to be funny without being off-putting." - 12/21/2010 Total Film


"[A]lternately somber, funny, elegiac and steadfastly if unconventionally moral....The Coens use the landscape beautifully, capturing the majesty of ripply baptismal rivers and craggy, charred-bone trees alike." - 12/22/2010 Movieline


"The best of the new TRUE GRIT comes from the actors who bring their vivid characters to life....With typically impeccable dusty-Western cinematography by Roger Deakins..." -- Grade: B+ - 12/24/2010 Entertainment Weekly


Included in USA Today's "10 Best Films Of 2010" -- "The Coen brothers fire on all cylinders with this remake of the 1969 Western..." - 12/31/2010 USA Today


"[T]he brothers clearly enjoy adopting Portis's dry plainspoken idiom....Bridges sounds as if he's talking through his collar, in a vocal performance that's entertaining no matter what he's saying..." - 01/01/2011 Film Comment


5 stars out of 5 -- "TRUE GRIT is really about Jeff Bridges, giving another peerless performance for the Coens....Certainly with TRUE GRIT, he's done great work in a great film." - 02/01/2011 Uncut


"[T]he production, by their regular team, is formally superb....The Coens inject something of its macabre fairytale timbre, retaining the book's grotesque touches and adding more." - 02/01/2011 Sight and Sound
