Richard Roeper Reviews Lawless
08.23.12 by Ryan
The summer has already been pretty kind to The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy, but his upcoming role in the drama Lawless could bring the British actor even more acclaim. Hardy, along with fellow A-lister (or is he? Check here for more details) Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke, star as three bootlegging brothers in Prohibition-era Virginia whose business comes under threat of the authorities like Chicago lawman Charles Rakes (Guy Pearce), who wants some of the brothers' profit. In the clip above, ReelzChannel movie expert Richard Roeper examines the movie and reveales whether Hardy or fellow cast members like Jessica Chastain (The Help) might find themselves in Oscar contention early next year.
Lawless was directed by John Hillcoat (The Proposition) from a script by musician-writer Nick Cave. Lawless co-stars Gary Oldman as the gangster Floyd Banner and Mia Wasikowska as Bertha Minnix, LaBeouf's love interest.
