On the back of True Grit’s hefty 10 Oscar nominations Paramount Pictures have released these four behind-the-scenes featurettes which give us a closer look at the cinematography, costumes, production design, and the music of the Coen Brothers’ film. True Grit is out now in the US. The movie is set for release in the UK the 11th of February, I’d strongly recommend giving it a peep – it’s a gem!

Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with “true grit,” Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her “grit” tested.
