Reminiscent of just about every Depression-era gangster film, “Lawless” shares the story of the “Bondurant Boys,” a real trio of brothers known as the most prolific moonshine peddlers in the nation for several years. The film is based on the novel “The Wettest County in the World,” author Matt Bondurant’s fictionalized retelling of his ancestors’ bootlegging ways. Bondurant shares with us his thoughts on the BBs, bootlegging, and how he came to tell this story.
