Wettest County, is an explosive gangster story from visionary director John Hillcoat (The Road) and starring Shia LaBeouf (Transformers, Indiana Jones 4, Wall Street 2) and Tom Hardy (Inception, Bronson).
Set in prohibition era America, Wettest County is the true story of the Bondurant brothers. Brazen and fearless, these young rural bootleggers became legendary criminals. The youngest brother, Jack (LaBeouf) is ambitious and impulsive, the middle brother, Howard, is loyal but reckless and eldest brother, Forrest (Hardy), leads the family with a silent determination. As the Bondurants’ illicit business and legend grows, so too looms the danger of bigger fish, and it’s not long before the brothers must face the consequences. At the expert hands of John Hillcoat, Wettest County promises to be bold, thrilling and wildly intoxicating reinvention of the gangster genre.
