About the Movie
In a first for A+E Networks, Lifetime, A&E and History will unite to simulcast the four-hour, two-night major event “Bonnie & Clyde,” starring Emile Hirsch (“Into the Wild”) and Holliday Grainger (“The Borgias”) in the title roles of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, the Depression-era outlaw couple whose criminal exploits have assured them lasting fame for eight decades. The star-studded cast also includes Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner Holly Hunter (“The Piano”) and Academy Award® winner and multiple Golden Globe® and Emmy® nominee William Hurt (“Too Big to Fail”). The miniseries reunites Hunter and Hurt, who starred in and earned Oscar® nominations for 1987’s “Broadcast News.” Hunter plays Emma Parker, Bonnie’s mother, and Hurt stars as Frank Hamer, the Texas Ranger pursuing the Barrow gang. Other key cast members include Sarah Hyland (“Modern Family”) as Blanche Barrow, Clyde’s sister-in-law; Lane Garrison (“Prison Break”) as Clyde’s brother Buck; Elizabeth Reaser (“The Twilight Saga”) as P.J. Lane, a writer tracking the gang; Austin Hebert (“True Blood”) as Ted Hinton, a lawman also on the hunt for the duo; and Dale Dickey (“Winter’s Bone”) as Cummie Barrow, Clyde’s mother.
