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. Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges – TRON: Legacy) is a US Marshall who many say has true grit, a person who will stop at nothing to get his man. So Mattie hires Cogburn and along with a Texas Ranger named LaBoeuf (Matt Damon – The Bourne Identity), form a trio to track down and kill Chaney once and for all.
