The story is about a 14 year old girl who seeks avenge for her father’s murder by hiring a U.S. marshal to find him. True Grit is another Coen brothers movie and is no less of their other two masterpieces, No Country for Old Men and Fargo.
Everything in the movie is executed perfectly but what I liked most was the acting. I actually enjoyed the performance of the actors maybe more than the sequence of the events. Everyone in this movie was real. It is Client Eastwood of Western movies. The movie has two academy winners Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon and an academy nominated Josh Brolin. Nevertheless, the best performance in this movie was by a 13 year old actress Hailee Steinfeld. Her performance is unprecedented although this is her first movie. May be the fact that she was selected among 15,000 girl auditioned for the role is also an indication of her talent.
Meet the 2011 academy award winner Hailee Steinfeld: "I’m about to embark on a great adventure. I intend to see Papa’s killer hanged… Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no one. I will avenge Papa’s death." This girl’s performance is just outstanding. Go watch the movie!
