Paramount has released four new clips from the Coen Bros “True Grit”. The film stars Jeff Bridges as alcoholic U.S. Marshall Rooster Cogburn (the role that won John Wayne an Oscar), Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and teenage newcomer Hailee Steinfeld. Quickly accumulating critical praise, “True Grit”, based on the novel by Charles Portis rather than its 1969 film adaptation, looks to be one of the best films of the year, and is well on the way to instant classic status.
These new clips highlight Steinfeld’s role as a the vengeful Mattie Ross, who doesn’t really understand what she’s gotten herself into by embarking on the trail of a murderous villain. Watch the impressive young actress hold her own with Bridges, Damon, and Brolin. The more that comes out, the better “True Grit” looks.
