True Grit - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Charles Portis' novel is about a 14-year-old girl who, along with an aging U.S. marshal and another lawman, tracks her father's killer in hostile Indian territory. While the original film was a showcase for John Wayne, the Coens' version will tell the tale from the girl's point of view. The original starred Kim Darby as the teen, Wayne and Glen Campbell as the lawmen, Jeff Corey as the killer and featured Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper as fellow outlaws.

MOVIE REVIEW

The great thing about westerns is that so few westerns are made anymore. Don't get me wrong - I love westerns - but given the genre's lack of popularity, when westerns are made these days the filmmakers seem to go to extra lengths to deliver quality. True Grit is further proof.
