Entertainment Focus - Review: True Grit

14 year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld – Back To You) is looking to track down the man responsible for murdering her father. Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin - Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps) is a wanted man and has evaded capture so Mattie takes it upon herself to do what the authorities can’t seem to do – bring Chaney to justice. She makes enquires about who is the best bounty hunter in town and is given a few names but only one man seems to have what she is looking for.

This is one of the best movies I've seen that was a reboot of an old western. I never really liked the original with John Wayne in it but I loved this one. I don't know if it was the characters and how they were protrayed by the actors or how the script was done more true to the book or if it was just directed better....I don't know. I just know that this movie impressed me a lot.
