1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In den 30er Jahren ist die Prohibition in den USA auf einem Höhepunkt angelangt: Während die Regierung den Konsum, die Herstellung und den Verkauf von Alkohol noch immer per Gesetz verbietet, boomt der Schwarzmarkt und die organisierte Kriminalität regiert das Tagesgeschäft. Auch die toughen Brüder Forest (Tom Hardy), Jack (Shia LaBeouf) und Howard Bondurant (Jason Clarke) sehen die Chance auf Gewinn und brennen in ihrer Heimat im Franklin County, Virgina, illegal Schnaps. Doch sie haben die Rechnung ohne den skrupellosen wie perfiden Special Agent Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce) gemacht, den der Staat in diese ländliche Gegend geschickt hat, um sich selbst an den illegalen Geschäften zu bereichern. Es entwickelt sich ein heftiger Kleinkrieg, der die Stadt in ein unbarmherziges Blutbad stürzt und die drei Brüder vor die größte Herausforderung in ihrem Leben stellt . Mit rigoroser Intensität, subtil-nervenzerreißender Spannung und einem detailgetreuen Setting beeindruckt das Gangster-Drama Lawless - Die Gesetzlosen, das von Regisseur John Hillcoat nach einer wahren Begebenheit inszeniert wurde. Als Hauptdarsteller brillieren Shia LaBeouf (Transformers 1-3) in der Rolle des jungen Jack Bondurant, Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Warrior) und Jason Clarke (The Great Gatsby) als dessen ältere Brüder Forest und Howard sowie Golden Globe®-Nominee Guy Pearce (Prometheus - Dunkle Zeichen) als Special Agent Charlie Rakes. Gary Oldman (Dame, König, As, Spion) glänzt in der Rolle des knallharten Großstadt-Gangsters Floyd Banner. Zudem setzen Jessica Chastain (The Tree of Life, Take Shelter - Ein Sturm zieht auf) und Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Alice im Wunderland) überzeugend die weiblichen Gegenspielerinnen in der gefährlichen Gangster-Welt in Szene
