Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld bringing True Grit to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that the 2010 western TRUE GRIT, directed by the Coen Brothers and starring Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld and Matt Damon, will be released on Blu-ray June 7, 2011. The movie will be available in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. The film was nominated for ten Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor (Jeff Bridges) and Best Supporting Actress (Hailee Steinfeld) but came home with no awards. The film follows a young girl who is tracking down her father’s murderer and enlists the help of a U.S. Marshall.

TRUE GRIT was one of those movies that was really fun to watch but I was completely surprised that it was so critically acclaimed. I’m thinking it’s because of the Coen Brothers, it seems like whatever they touch the critics love but I’m not terribly impressed with a lot of their films, although this one was really fun. Special features for TRUE GRIT include:
