Lawless

When the law became corrupt, outlaws became heroes.


Lawless
Lawless is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation's most notorious crime wave. Their main problem is the ruthless out-of-town agent who comes to investigate their activities. Inbetween all the violent actions, they still find some time for romance too.

130 minutes.

What the Critics say

Box Office
Kate Erbland quote iconLawless is a minor classic in the making. But minor it will remain, as even with quality ingredients, the film never quite mixes together to deliver a potent brew.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconLawless is a well-made film about ignorant and violent people. Like the recent Killer Joe, I can only admire this film's craftsmanship and acting, and regret its failure to rise above them.

C. Fuchs quote iconNot as intoxicating as it likely could have been.

Tomatometer quote iconGrim, bloody, and utterly flawed, Lawless doesn't quite achieve the epic status it strains for, but it's too beautifully filmed and powerfully acted to dismiss.
