Mattie Ross is a 14 year-old-girl who enlists the help of a ruthless, stern but drunken bounty hunter named Rooster Cogburn to capture the Tom Chaney, the man who killed Mattie’s father. The film is beautifully shot and wonderfully directed and though it’s not Bridges’ finest performance, Hailee Steinfeld steals the show as the stubborn young girl. It’s fascinating seeing her try to cope with the way the world is, considering she is a woman. The film is very overrated but it’s still worth a watch for Western fans. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
