True Grit, Punishment Comes One Way Or AnotherCategory: Entertainment
True Grit is a movie about retribution. Of seeking vengeance, trying to avenge someone’s wrongdoing.
The first movie that comes to mind with this plot is Road to Perdition starring Tom Hanks. It’s a very beautiful movie about a father and son.
In True Grit, there’s no father as he was murdered and a daughter is trying to find a companion, a father figure to aid her in her quest to avenge her father’s death.
It is the second adaptation of the 1968 novel by Charles Portis, which was previously adapted for film in 1969 starring John Wayne.
The movie features an all-star cast with Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin as well as Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross, the vengeful daughter.
Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with “true grit,” Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her “grit” tested.
True Grit is directed by Joel & Ethan Coen and co-produced with Steven Spielberg for a budget of $? million.
