Who doesn’t love a good Depression-era moonshiner gangster pic? Previously titled The Wettest County, our first look at John Hilcoat’s film about bootlegger brothers (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clarke) in Franklin County, Va. features some fabulously outré accents and enough hard-boiled dialogue to turn an ear of corn into whiskey so strong it’d grow hair on a newborn baby’s behind. I’m not entirely sure what that previous sentence is supposed to mean except that I’m already plumb keen on this film. Check out the trailer below:
