For those of you who don't watch the history of bootlegging specials on the History Channel, here's an infographic that was inspired by the Prohibition era crime movie, Lawless. The infogrpahic breaks down the history, science, and dangers of the moonshine business, which is exactly why I never went down that career path.
The John Hillcoat directed film looks like a great movie, and it stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.
Lawless opens in theaters on August 29th, and I'm looking forward to it! The graphic comes from CraveOnline, and here's a note from The Weinstein Company:
In the series of 6 new pieces that will be released weekly, The Weinstein Company has taken to new art to showcase the gangster life of The Bondurant Brothers and their law/outlaw counterparts. This is such an interesting time period in the history of gangsters and Prohibition and we felt it important to showcase different aspects of this legendary outlaw era.
Below the infographic you'll find the latest trailer for the movie. Do you think you'd make a good bootlegger?
