The film is based on the novel 'The Wettest County in the World' by Matt Bondurant. The story is based on Bondurant's grandfather and granduncle's exploits. Whether it's true or not is harder to say.

Lawless is one of the very few cases where an Uncensored Version has never been released in its country of origin. While the US releases only offer the Censored Version, the Uncensored Version is only available in foreign countries. All in all, 9 scenes with 9 seconds have been censored to get an R although it adds almost 9 seconds in an alternate scene and two further trivial short scenes. The motives for those alterations are unknown. Maybe the studio was trying to cover up the censoring by adding "superfluous" footage to reach the length of the Uncensored Version. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
