The plot: In the mountains of Franklin County, local cops turn a blind eye to the illegal activities of Forrest Bondurant and his siblings Howard and Jack. The brothers run a successful bar and eke out a comfortable living by trading moonshine, made at secret distilleries maintained by Jack's disabled pal, Cricket. The siblings' business empire threatens to crumble to its foundations when sadistic Special Deputy Charley Rakes arrives from Chicago on a mission to shut down the distilleries.

what the others say
"With a dynamite cast, an iconic screenwriter in rocker Nick Cave and an Aussie director in John Hillcoat, you assume a new classic. What you get is an ambitious try."
"An uneven mix of impressively executed, violent cliches about good ol' boys defending the American right to flout the law."
"The various performances are all of an incredibly high standard, with some perhaps more inspired pieces of casting but others representing actors rising up to a reach a high bar."
