Lawless: Beach Blanket Bondurant

I'm fairly certain that you need not have read Matt Bondurant's somewhat true historical novel The Wettest County In The World to be gleefully anticipating the Wednesday premiere of John Hillcoat's star-packed Lawless.

Here's why I'm interested in a movie where Sam Witwicky, Comissioner Gordon, Peter Weyland, and Bane (sporting a weathered-looking Mr. Rogers cardigan) brew hooch and perpetrate violence: they wear hats, have warm southern drawls, and cause a rip in the fabric of the universe resulting from too much method acting in a small space.

So what say you? Will you make time to watch a dark, gritty prohibition period piece about Virginia moonshiners starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, and Jessica Chastain? Or will you be spending your money elsewhere?
