Synopsis:
The freewheelin’ Bondurants
are bootlegging siblings. The youngest,
Jack, fancies himself the next Al Capone. He
dreams of sharp suits, guns, girls and fast cars,
no matter the cost.Ambitious and impulsive,
he takes the family’s small-scale moonshining
operation to the big leagues. The middle
brother, Howard, is the brawling muscle
– loyal but reckless –, never one to turn down
a taste of white lightning. The eldest, Forrest,
reluctantly accepts the changing times
with grace and grit, leading the family with
strength of character and silent determination
against the beginnings of corporate greed.
As the Bondurants’ legend grows, so does
the danger, and it’s not long before they must
face the consequences of their transgressions,
or rewrite the myth and the law themselves.
