Set in the Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, a bootlegging gang is threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits.
Review from the comment
The Bondurant brothers run a productive Moonshine business in Virginia during prohibition. Soon, a corrupt government agent from Chicago strolls into town and wants a cut of the action. Of course that just won't do, and the standoff is on. Which side will emerge from the battle victorious? I had very high expectations from Lawless, but they were quelled slightly after viewing the film. There are moments where you have to suspend all types of realism to accept what happens along the way. However, Lawless is hurt by showcasing Shia LeBeouf as the headliner. Put him in with giant robots and I can handle that. However, in an adult drama that should pack some punch, he can't deliver.
