STAY AFTER THE FILM FOR A SPECIAL Q&A WITH AUTHOR MATT BONDURANT WHOSE FAMILY STORY IS THE BASIS FOR THE NOVEL THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD IS THE BASIS FOR THE FILM
LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers, Forrest (Tom Hardy, The Dark Knight Rises), Jack (Shia LeBeouf, Transformers), and Howard (Jason Clarke, Public Enemies): bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant's family in his novel The Wettest County in the World, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation's most notorious crime wave. Directed by John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition), LAWLESS also stars Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Jessica Chastain (Tree of Life), Guy Pearce (The Proposition), Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), and Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre), and was nominated for the illustrious Palm d'Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
