Its about the Bondurant Brothers, bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. It makes a great gangster tale that has immediately become one of my favourites.

" Cool. Cool. Cool. Prohibition era with characters that actually looked as dirty as the set? Nice. Tom Hardy was pretty fantastic and I really enjoy Shia LaBeouf in pretty much anything. That kid, Dane Dehaan (Cricket in this film; Andrew in 'Chronicle'), though...I think he's going to be the one to watch. Anyway, I enjoyed this gritty period piece to the very last moment."
