True Grit (2010) Synopsis

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross's (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him -- over his objections -- to hunt down Chaney. Her father's blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.

Good Things Come In Threes: Seven Great Movie Trios Good Things Come In Threes: Seven Great Movie Trios
While film history is full of great, well-developed characters that stand on their own, there’s something to be said for a great trio. Larry, Curly and Moe, for example, may have each been funny and interesting on their own, but together, these characters formed a comedic connection, which would be celebrated for decades to come. Sometimes the joining of three great characters creates an on-screen dynamic that’s truly worth much more than the sum of its parts.
