Unforgettable Performances - Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, 2010)

I witnessed one of the most impressive performances by a young newcomer when I watched the movie True Grit. Hailee Steinfeld was surrounded by big name actors such as Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges who also gave solid performances. At no point did she get overshadowed by the talent pool - she stood right out. She gave a very commanding and confident performance from start to finish. Every line uttered by her was so thunderous; she was a pleasure to watch and listen to and had me glued to this movie.

The Coen Brothers did a fantastic job with this western remake. It looked great, had a fantastic script with equally fantastic performances. Young Hailee was really great and as a result she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress.
