heroes_gritxDec 23, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Much anticipated movie “True Grit” hit the theaters on December 22. The movie has already bagged many nominations for its wonderful storyline and excellent performances by the actors. Actor Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and actress Hailee Steinfeld put up a good show in the movie and they received praises for their commendable acting. The director of the movie, Coen Brothers (Ethan Jesse Coen and Joel David Coen), in their exclusive interview spoke about their inspirations to do the flick, the actors and also the challenges they faced, while shooting the movie.

Speaking about the storyline of the movie, Joel David Coen said that it is the story of a “precarious” girl, who gets thrown up in the adult world as she searches her father’s killer. The director Ethan Jesse Coen said that Mattie Ross (played by Hailee Steinfeld) in this movie is looking for someone who has the ability and mettle to help her in her search. Joel David Coen added that for years, they wanted to do a project with veteran actor Jeff Bridges and in “True Grit” their wish became a reality. Joel David Coen said that the script demanded them to shoot in different places but the weather was somehow uncooperative and hence they had to face many difficulties while coping up with the weather.

The Coen Brothers said that the landscape of the movie do not match the movie at all. Joel David Coen said that they wanted to portray that more than the location or anything else, they wanted to bring out the humor and the main storyline of the novel in their movie. Actress Hailee Steinfeld also spoke about the movie and said that it was an “incredible” experience for her to work with Coen Brothers and Jeff Bridges.
