Lawless (2012) Rated R

LawlessSet in the 1930s, three bootlegging brothers are confronted by a new deputy and other authorities who threaten their profits. Based on the book, The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant. Starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska.

Understated yet powerful, this film focuses on the character development rather than fast-paced action to tell the story.  The cast is exceptional; LaBeouf is a unexpected surprise as one of the brothers.  Be prepared for emotional intensity and disturbing violence.  This film is worth a watch.
