Lawless : The Movie:Plot
John Hillcoat's Lawless is far closer in spirit to his Outback Western, The Proposition, than his more recent, harrowing film, The Road. Lawless is based on the avowedly true story of the Bondurant brothers in Franklin Country, Virginia, running illicit liquor throughout the prohibition era from their own stills way up in the hills, and fighting battles with corrupt cops and feds, all greedy for a slice of the hooch profits.
Lawless is a handsome-looking film, with a reasonably winning lead performance from Shia LaBeouf. But it's basically a smug, empty exercise in macho-sentimental violence in which we are apparently expected to root for the lovable good ol' boys, as they mumble, shoot, punch and stab. Our heroes manage to ensnare the affections of preposterously exquisite young women, and the final flurry of self-adoring nostalgia is borderline-nauseating.
Tom Hardy plays Forrest Bondurant, a great impassive lunk of a man: tough, grizzled, though with Hardy's weirdly sensuous lips. He is feared and respected for the unhesitating brutality with which he protects his bootlegging business. Jason Clarke plays Howard Bondurant, his more obviously crazy hillbilly brother, given to getting high on his own supply, and to alerting Forrest to cop raids by flinging back his head and howling like a dog. And lastly, there is nervous, quick-witted young Jack Bondurant, nicely played by LaBeouf, touchy about the fact that he is not as tough as his siblings, and eager to prove himself. The brothers run a kind of roadhouse-cum-gas-station very like the kind of establishment you see at the beginning of scary movies — and entertainingly portrayed in Joss Whedon's The Cabin In The Woods.
