Centers on the story of three brothers - Forrest (Tom Hardy), Howard and Jack (Shia LaBeouf) in order of age and toughness - running a bootlegging gang during 1930’s Prohibition whose moonshine dynasty in Franklin County, Virginia is threatened by the authorities wanting a cut. The tale is told through the eyes of the youngest brother Jack, who doesn’t really have the stomach for violence or taste for madness and drink that his wild older brothers do. In many ways, it’s the tale of the younger Bondurant building character and becoming a man, but not necessarily by following in his brother’s footsteps. Forrest is described as a giant, Howard a drunk and Jack as the runt of the trio.
