I've been on the fence about Lawless and waiting for something to blow my socks off, and ladies and gentlemen, I believe I have now found it. The first few trailers I have seen just lacked some "power." Watching this one, I felt the opposite and in many ways now think perhaps they were really restricted with the first trailers and had to make them acceptable for all audiences. However, now that they actually got to the good stuff, it is really good.
The film tells the story of a gang of bootleggers in the prohibition era and the authorities who try to stop them. The cast is truly unbelievable with Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce and Shia Labeouf among others. They were smart to release this trailer because I have now gone over to the "when can I buy tickets?" side. The film will be released on August 29th, so the wait won't be long.
