Lawless Movie Quotes

"Lawless" movie quotes follow the true life story of the Bondurant brothers who battle corrupt lawmen and each other during the Prohibition Era in Virginia. Based on the novel "The Wettest County in the World" written by Matt Bondurant about his grandfather and granduncles, "Lawless" tells the story of "when the law becomes corrupt, outlaws become the heroes."

Like many in that time, the Bondurant brothers, Jack (Shia LaBeouf), Forrest (Tom Hardy) and Howard (Jason Clarke), start their own bootlegging business to create whiskey during prohibition. Jack soon gets the taste for cash and begins working with a gangster, Floyd Banner (Gary Oldman), to sell their high quality liquor for a profit. This doesn't sit too well with the other brothers, who were not exactly consulted about the decision.

This all goes by the wayside though when the local law decides they want a cut of all the money the brothers are making from their illegal operation. Sheriff Hodges (Bill Camp) learns that taking on the Bondurants isn't going to be easy so he calls for the help of Special Agent Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce). As the two sides battle, the brothers fight to keep their relationships with each other and their romantic interests (Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska), from falling apart.

"Lawless" joins the summer 2012 movie season which also includes dozens of other hits such as "The Campaign," "The Babymakers," "Ted," "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "Madea's Witness Protection," "Magic Mike," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

    Forrest: "Here it is. As long as you are my brother, you will never let this happen ever again. Do you understand?"
    Jack: "I didn't"
    Forrest: "I don't think you do."
    Jack: "What if I can't? I'm not good like you. I ain't never been like you."
    Forrest: "It's all right. Jack, It is not the violence that sets men apart. It is the distance that he is prepared to go. Jack, look at me. We are survivors. We control the fear. But without the fear, we are all as good as dead."

    In the middle of the battle between the law and the Bondurant family, there exists the three brothers whose relationship is tested. When Jack strays and goes out on his own, it's Forrest and Howard who are there to bring him back down to earth.
