The Piedmont region of Virginia is the area the story of the Bondurant brothers took place. The story is the base of the movie Lawless, a 2012 American crime drama film directed by John Hillcoat, based on Matt Bondurant's historical novel The Wettest County in the World (2008). The film is about the violent conflict between three bootlegging brothers–Forrest, Howard , and Jack Bondurant and the ruthless Deputy Charley Rakes and his men, who try to shut down the brothers' Prohibition-era moonshine business after Forrest refuses to pay the cops off.
