Gangster meets Western in LAWLESS, the true story of the freewheelin’ Bondurant brothers, bootlegging siblings taking the law into their own hands. This is the story of the rural hard-men that created the big city gangsters. Brazen and fearless, these young rebel brothers helped build the American Dream in this exuberant tale of what was to become crime’s first major gold rush.
The youngest brother, JACK, fancies himself the next Al Capone; he dreams of sharp suits, guns, girls and fast cars, no matter the cost. Ambitious and impulsive, he takes the family’s small-scale moonshining operation to the big leagues, to impress the gorgeous but off-limits Amish girl, BERTHA. The middle brother, HOWARD, is the brawling muscle – loyal but reckless – never one to turn down a taste of white lightning. And eldest brother, FORREST, reluctantly accepts the changing times with grace and grit, leading the family with strength of character and silent determination against the beginnings of corporate greed. An enigmatic and stunning MAGGIE comes to town with a hidden past, igniting his passion and almost saving him in the process. As the Bondurants’ legend grows, so too does the danger, and it’s not long before the brothers must face the consequences of their transgressions, or rewrite the myth and the law themselves.
J.T says: How was it like working with Tom Hardy? Any chance that you will grow a beard like his?
Guy Pearce: I am completely in awe of Tom Hardy. I’ve never met another actor with such charisma, and I really think he’s one of the most exciting actors I’ve ever come across. He was just a delight. But I am still waiting to see the beard.
Lawless (Director: John Hillcoat):
Why you might like it: The story centers on a group of brothers who run a bootlegging business in depression-era Virginia.
Why I’ve got my eye on it: Having seen an early cut of the film, it features a strong performance, with Oscar potential, from Tom Hardy. The film is gorgeous in its lush landscape and has pitch perfect music to match the scenery.
