LAWLESS is a drama set in Prohibition-era Virginia in which a family of moonshine smugglers find themselves under growing pressure from a Special Agent.

Violence

There are a number of scenes of strong bloody violence, including sight of a man's throat being slit, sight of a man's head being punched with a knuckle-duster, and sight of people being shot. In one scene a man has boiling tar poured over his back and in another we are shown the aftermath of an act of torture during which a man's genitals have been cut off. The severed genitals are subsequently seen in a jar.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k').

There is brief full frontal nudity as a naked woman walks through a house at night.
