True Grit (2010)

Jeff Bridges as "Rooster Cogburn"

After an outlaw named Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin) murders her father, feisty 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) hires Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), a boozy, trigger-happy lawman, to help her find Chaney and avenge her father. The bickering duo are not alone in their quest, for a Texas Ranger named LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) is also tracking Chaney for reasons of his own. Together the unlikely trio ventures into hostile territory to dispense some Old West justice.

Academy Award (2010) Nominated Best Actor
British Academy of Film & Television Arts (2010) Nominated Actor in a Leading Role
Screen Actors Guild Awards (2010) Nominated Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
