* NeverTrustATrailer: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Zl7S1LaPMU This trailer]] implies that Floyd Banner is a quite important character as Rake's [[The Dragon Dragon]], but Banner is actually a very minor character (Gary Oldman has less than ten minutes onscreen) and an ally of the Bondurants. Its also shows [[spoiler:Cricket's funeral without saying who died, implying they are those of one of the protagonists - all three are still alive until the very end of the movie, which is set years after the main story.]]

* FakeAmerican: Apart from Shia [=LaBeouf=] and Creator/JessicaChastain, the main cast are all either British (Tom Hardy, GaryOldman) or Australian (Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Creator/MiaWasikowska). Their accents are all pretty impeccable, though.

''Lawless'' is a 2012 film set during the Prohibition era, and following the exploits of the Bondurants, a family of bootleggers. It is TheFilmOfTheBook ''The Wettest Country in the World'', written by Matt Bondurant (the grandson and great nephew of the three brothers). Their steady work of selling moonshine in rural Virginia (with the compliance of the local sheriff) is complicated by two things; the arrival of Rakes, an agent from the corrupt DA, who demands a cut of the local bootleggers' profits, and the youngest brother's ambition causing them to leave their comfort zone and take bigger risks.

* DefiledForever: [[spoiler: Totally averted. Maggie seems to recover completely from her rape, is able to drive Forrest to hospital immediately after, and starts a sexual relationship with him without any apparent psychological issues. She only starts crying when directly asked about it, and even then she keeps her composure. Forrest, when he suspects that she was raped, goes into clear TranquilFury mode, but it is directed entirely against her attackers and he doesn't consider her "damaged goods" in the slightest.]]
