True Grit Movie Summary

In the film, True Grit, Mattie Ross (played by Kim Darby) is an amazing young woman. When her Father is killed in cold blood by one of his employees, Tom Chaney, she bravely marches into town to claim his body and belongings.

Mattie expresses her grief by going after the low life that killed her Father. She hires Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) a Marshall with “true grit” to help her find Chaney and the gang he is associating with. Chaney is bunking with Ned Pepper (Robert Duval)and his hoodlums. They are joined by a Texan named La Beouf (Glen Campell), who is also after the nefarious Chaney.

The three personalities clash but they actually make a great team. They catch up with the outlaws where Mattie is able to look Tom Chaney in the eye. She manages to wound him before being grabbed by Ned Pepper. Ned orders Rooster and La Beouf to retreat. Mattie is left with Chaney but is saved by La Beouf. Meanwhile, Rooster takes out three of Ned’s goons and wounds Ned. La Beouf then shoots Ned before he can kill Rooster.
