VIRGINIA BOOTLEGGERS MOVIE, NICK CAVE, TOM HARDY AND SHIA LABEOUF

Boys. Guns. Trade. ‘Money.’ Moonshine.–exciting or an expensive hang over to humanity, already?

This movie is going to be a hit. Original Gangster’s Offensive Guard rhetoric, from Franklin Virginia. Especially for the little people of America and pub swilling UK too. Relevant as the UK and America think military.

The Wettest County in The World is a screenplay written by Nick Cave based on the book penned by Matt Bondurant.

The film stars Tom Hardy of Inception and Shia LaBeouf of Transformers and Indiana Jones fame.

Wettest is based on the story of Bondurant’s own family in Franklin County Virginia during the prohibition years.

“Based on the true story of Matt’s grandad and two granduncles, The Wettest County in the World is a gripping tale of brotherhood, greed, and murder.

The Bondurant Boys were a notorious gang of roughnecks and moonshiners who ran liquor through Franklin County, Virginia, during Prohibition and in the years after. Forrest, the eldest brother, is fierce, mythically indestructible, and the consummate businessman; Howard, the middle brother, is an ox of a man besieged by the horrors he witnessed in the Great War; and Jack, the youngest, has a taste for luxury and a dream to get out of Franklin. Driven and haunted, these men forge a business, fall in love, and struggle to stay afloat as they watch their family die, their father’s business fail, and the world they know crumble beneath the Depression and drought.

“White mule, white lightning, firewater, popskull, wild cat, stump whiskey, or rotgut — whatever you called it, Franklin County was awash in moonshine in the 1920s. When Sherwood Anderson, the journalist and author of Winesburg, Ohio, was covering a story there, he christened it the “wettest county in the world.” In the twilight of his career, Anderson finds himself driving along dusty red roads trying to find the Bondurant brothers, piece together the clues linking them to “The Great Franklin County Moonshine Conspiracy,” and break open the silence that shrouds Franklin County.

“In vivid, muscular prose, Matt Bondurant brings these men — their dark deeds, their long silences, their deep desires — to life. His understanding of the passion, violence, and desperation at the center of this world is both heartbreaking and magnificent.”

If you read Matt’s comments here about his grandfather, he speaks of a man who had a gun rack and brass knucklebusters hanging on the wall beneath them. I always thought guns were useful for hunting food on the prairie. To use them on people, should be the last and final resort. However, Matt’s seductive prose has many sucked in to his violence masquerading as noteworthy American culture. The power of words, and a tough bitten sound in this day and age.”

Tough Bitten–good words.

INK – A UNION JACK TATTOO by TOM HARDY AND P-NUT

Brian Glatiotis is the tattoo artist that actor Tom Hardy of Inception fame asked to ink a Union Jack flag on his chest. Hardy had seen Glatiotis’ artistry on the arm of a woman on the set of This Means War.

The film is currently being shot in Vancouver. Hardy’s assistant P-Nut also went out in sympathy with his bro and got inked at the same time too.
