Us Rating: ****

In this bull's-eye of a Western, a 14-year-old (Hailee Steinfeld) hires a drunk (Jeff Bridges) to find her father's killer (Josh Brolin). The Coen Brothers (No Country For Old Men), who wrote and directed, jave delivered  a deadplan yarn about a frontier girl's mettle and power to affect men around her. Matt Damon delights as a lawman, but it's Steinfeld who stands out. Not since Anna Paquin won an Oscar for The Piano has a girl shown such screen presence.
