Default True Grit

A remake of an old John Wayne flick, arguably one of his best. The description straight from the vid I'm about to link states:

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross's (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him - over his objections - to hunt down Chaney. Her father's blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.

Excellent. We don't get enough westerns these days. I love the genre! Thanks mate, the last one I watched was Apoloosa (loved it).

I agree. Westerns are shunned these days but they're one of the most interesting genre's to me. Hopefully this movie will inspire others but we'll see how it turns out.
