Near perfect western
True Grit is a modern Western Classic. I have seen a fair number of very well done Westerns such as Shane, The Searchers, Unforgiven, etc. That said this is one of my favorites and ranks right up with some of the best. It is the story of a teenage girl named Mattie Ross out to hunt down the outlaw (Josh Brolin) who killed her pa in Arkansas around 1878-1880. She hires a drinking but trigger happy Marshal named Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) to assist her. Along the way they sometimes teamup with Texas Ranger Lebeouf (Matt Damon) seeking the outlaw for a seperate reward. The only things standing in their way are rough terrain, bad weather, their own conflicting personalities, and of course a gang of well armed outlaws.
