“Lawless” spins the gritty tale of the three Bondurant brothers (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clark) who get involved in the bootlegging business during the Prohibition in Virginia. Rocker/Writer/Actor Nick Cave wrote the screenplay which is based on Matt Bondurant’s historical novel, “The Wettest Country in The World.”
Thus far the project is bringing in solid reviews. If you’re a fan of bloody-knuckled American crime pics and bathtub gin, we suggest you don your best fedora and check out “Lawless” (Theatrical Release Date: August 31st, 2012).
