Prohibition film screened at Cannes

A star-studded cast that includes Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy is set to tread the streets of Cannes today in support of a new gangster film.

Lawless, the true story of the Bondurant Brothers, will be screened at the 65th film festival tonight.

Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain and Jason Clarke also feature in the movie, which is set in Prohibition-era America.

It focuses on the Bondurant bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Virginia.

The epic gangster tale is inspired by true-life stories from author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel The Wettest County in the World.

The loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s crime wave.

Members of the Lawless cast will hold a press conference about the film today at the festival in the south of France.
