The Nitty Gritty of True Grit 

New DVD release

Nothing says "I love you" quite like a young daughter seeking revenge against the man who murdered her father.

The Coen Brothers' True Grit is the story of 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) who is hell-bent on Wild West justice with the assistance of two men from the wrong side of the tracks: Jeff Bridges as old U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn and Matt Damon as Texas Ranger LaBoeuf.

The film is based on Charles Portis' 1968 novel, and there was some concern that the Coen Brothers' take on the story wouldn't live up to the 1969 screen interpretation, which starred John Wayne. But even with all of the Coen Brothers' usual on-screen blood and guts, this most recent version walked away from the 2010 Academy Awards with 10 nominations.
