With moonshine, bootleggers, gangsters and Tommy-guns, Lawless is still not just a prohibition-film. Set in rural Franklin, it often feels like a western. Even if you can’t stand Shia LeBeouf, you have to see this film for Tom Hardy’s performance as the “immortal” Forrest Bondurant. Part Clint Eastwood, part Jesse James, but with none of the charm, he presents us with a unique and fascinating character.
