'Lawless': A Family with a Moonshine Bloodline

This story is, in many ways, a classic American tale: a Mom-and-Pop operation fights enterprising Big City interlopers. By honing in on one such family business, we get a Western-gangster film hybrid that is tough, tender and telling -- and set to one helluva soundtrack.
