Customer Review

"Lawless" (115 min.) brings the story, "based on true facts" we are reminded at the beginning of the movie, of the Bondurant brothers -- Forrest (played by Tom Hardy), Howard (played by Jason Clarke) and Jack (played by Shia LaBeouf) in the early 1930s, running a bootlegging business in "the wettest county of the world", Franklin County, VA, during the Prohibition era. Of course troubles ensue, when the authorities try to bunker down on their illegal activities, none more so than by brutal Special Agent Charlie Rakes (played by Guy Pearce). To give more away of the plot would riun your viewing experience.

Several comments: first and foremost, Tom Hardy shows us what a great acting talent he really is, in a role which allows him to stretch, much more so than when we saw him earlier this summer as the "mask man" in The Dark Knight Rises. But there are several other choice performances: Jessica Chastain (as the eventual girlfriend of Forrest) confirms once again that she is truly one of the best up-and-coming female talents of this generation (after her recent roles in The Debt, The Three of Life and The Help). And what about Mia Wasikowska, in the role of eventual girfriend of Jack, still only 22 yrs. old and continuing her ascent as one of the better femal actresses today as well.

The movie rolls along very nicely, and these 2 hours flew by in no time. I enjoyed this from start to finish. "Lawless" brings an excellent slice-of-life from the turbulent early 1930s. "Lawless" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
