The story of Bonnie and Clyde is far from a fairytale, and director Bruce Beresford doesnít try to present it as one in the TV miniseries that showcases the two notorious criminals. Starring Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch as the titular Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, Bonnie & Clyde delivers a story thatís entertaining, suspenseful and engrossing all at once, without relying entirely on glamour or flashy bank robbery scenes to draw interest.
Later this year, A&E, Lifetime and History will air Bonnie & Clyde, the two-night miniseries event that will simulcast on all three networks. In anticipation of that and in acknowledgement of the 79th anniversary of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's death on May 23, 1934, they're giving us our first looks at the two lead characters in this story. Take a look at Emile Hirsche and Holliday Grainger as the title characters that make up the legendary 1930s couple, who grabbed the nation's attention with their crime spree.
