He held the gun... but she called the shots, in the ground breaking mini-series Bonnie & Clyde, arriving on DVD with UltraViolet on 19th May 2014 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Having premiered on Lifetime in the UK, the passion-filled mini-series, executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, follows one of the nation's most notorious couples, Clyde Barrow (Emile Hirsch) and Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger), who lusted after fortune, killed for fame, and embarked on an adrenaline-filled crime spree across America.
Fans, historians and skeptics who are restless to uncover more about this legendary couple can dive into bonus materials available on the two-disc DVD set: three all-new featurettes that give a candidly revealing look at the filming process and how Hirsch and Grainger interpreted their characters.
In addition to breakout performances from Hirsch (Into the Wild, Savages) and Grainger (Jane Eyre, The Borgias), Bonnie & Clyde also stars Sarah Hyland (TV's Modern Family, Struck by Lightning), Elizabeth Reaser and Academy Award® winning powerhouses Holly Hunter (The Piano; O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and William Hurt (TV's Damages, The Incredible Hulk). The mini-series was written by John Rice and Joe Batteer, and it was directed by Bruce Beresford.
Though Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger, Jane Eyre) & Clyde Barrow's (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild) crime spree is legendary, their story has never been told quite like this. Fuelled by their passion for each other and Bonnie's obsession with fame, the couple committed increasingly dangerous robberies, leaving a trail of blood - and headlines - behind them. Aided by Clyde's sixth sense, they stayed one step ahead of the law until their final, fateful showdown.
Bonnie & Clyde Also starS Academy Award® winners Holly Hunter (Best Actress, 1993, The Piano) and William Hurt (Best Actor, 1985, Kiss of the Spider Woman), Bonnie & Clyde is powerful, gripping entertainment.
