After hired hand Tom Chaney (Jeff Corey) murders the father of 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby), she seeks vengeance and hires U.S. Marshal "Rooster" Cogburn (John Wayne), a man of "true grit," to track Chaney into Indian territory. As the two begin their pursuit, a Texas Ranger, La Boeuf (Glen Campbell), joins the manhunt in hopes of capturing Chaney for the murder of a Texas senator and collecting a substantial reward. The three clash on their quest of bringing to justice the same man.

Creative Loafing Atlanta Coen Brothers' True Grit: Now with 25 percent more grit Joel and Ethan Coen's remake presents a revisionist perspective on the Western genre by Curt Holman 12/22/2010
Charleston City Paper The Coen Brothers' True Grit is only a little gritty It is quite possible that True Grit is the most heartwarming film the Coen Brothers have ever written, directed, and produced. And I'm still not quite sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. At its most basic, the film's themes are Hollywood standards we've seen before and will see again: A young girl needs to prove herself amongst older, wiser men. An old curmudgeon and the too-smart-for-her-own-good tween learn to respect each other over the course of a dangerous adventure. And it's all set to a schmaltzy score. by Susan Cohen 12/22/2010
