Ethan and Joel Coen’s handsome and
beautifully acted film is not a remake of the 1969 John Wayne film, but a
new version of Charles Portis’ 1968 novel. Jeff Bridges
stars as Rooster Cogburn, a one-eyed, frequently drunk U.S. Marshall
hired by 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Haillee Steinfeld) who’s incredibly
determined to find her father’s murderer.
