A hard-hitting Prohibition-era gangster film with an all-star cast
Set during Depression-era Virginia, Lawless tells the story of the infamous Bondurant brothers. Forrest (Tom Hardy), Howard (Jason Clarke) and Jack (Shia LaBeouf) are supplying all of Franklin County with the finest Moonshine. The county is not known as the 'Wettest County in the World' for nothing. There is even a legend going around that the brothers are undefeatable and cannot be killed. The arrival of reptile-like, corrupt Special Agent Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce) will test this legend extensively
Lawless is based on Matt Bondurant's novel The Wettest County in the World. The inspiration for the book was Bondurant's own family history. Musician/novelist Nick Cave wrote the screenplay, like he did for the last two films of director John Hillcoat, namely and .
DeHaan spoke recently about 'The Place Beyond the Pines', and what he has to say couldnt get us more excited.
'Lawless' is coming out in two weeks, and there hasn't been a trailer yet that captured the potential of John Hillcoats fantastically cast bootlegger pic. That is until now.
Prohibition never looked as cool as it does on this new poster for John Hillcoat's 'Lawless'.
