Howdy partners, and thanks for comin’ around these parts again. For your troubles, the good folks over at Alliance Films have partnered up with Dork Shelf once again to send ten lucky winners and a guest in TORONTO, WINNIPEG, OTTAWA, and HALIFAX to an advance screening of the prohibition era drama LAWLESS on Monday, August 27th at 7:00pm.
Lawless is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: three bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In the mountains of Franklin County, the brothers are the stuff of legend. The eldest, Howard (Jason Clarke), managed to survive the carnage of the Great War, but he returned home unmoored by what he had seen and done. His brother Forrest (Tom Hardy) nearly died from the Spanish Flu that took his parents. He beat back death with a quiet strength and ferocious, visceral invincibility that came to define him. Jack (Shia LaBeouf) is the youngest sibling, impressionable, sensitive, smart. Times are tough and jobs are scarce, but the Bondurants are entrepreneurs and have built a thriving local business by concocting an intense and popular brand of moonshine. But Franklin County’s bootlegging days are about to end with the arrival of Special Deputy Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce) from Chicago. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Dane DeHaan, Mia Wasikowska, and Gary Oldman as gangster Floyd Benner.
Lawless opens in theatres everywhere on Wednesday, August 29th, but we want to send you to see it first! To enter, simply email [email protected] with LAWLESS and YOUR CITY in the subject line.
