Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman star in this true-story, prohibition era gangster film from the makers of The Proposition.

Set in Virginia during the depression, and based on the true story of the Bondurant brothers - three rural bootleggers who defied the crooked authorities that wanted a piece of their profits. Jack (LaBeouf), the youngest, aspires to live in the suited-up ranks of Al Capone, Howard (Jason Clarke), the middle, is a reckless brute, and Forrest (Hardy), the eldest, heads the family operation against the changing times. As the brothers’ legacy grows, so do the risks.

This marks the second collaboration between director John Hillcoat and screenwriter Nick Cave, the first being the well-received Aussie western The Proposition.

Not amazing, but a good watch

This is no classic, but it's an entertaining movie start to end. Great performances and quite brutal.
