Bonnie & Clyde, Lifetime channel 131

Catch Bonnie & Clyde in September on Lifetime DStv channel 131.

Drama fans are in for a real treat on Sunday 6 September and Sunday 13 September at 20:00 when Lifetime (DStv channel 131) will be showing the acclaimed made-for-TV movie Bonnie & Clyde

Starring Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) in the title roles of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, the four-hour, two-night major event tells the story of the Depression-era outlaw couple whose criminal exploits have assured them lasting fame for eight decades.

Bonnie & Clyde follows Barrow, Parker and the notorious Barrow Gang as they sweep through the Central and Southern United States committing small-time robberies and daring bank heists, leaving murdered police officers and civilians in their wake. Rumoured to have a sixth-sense to see events before they happened, Barrow was always able to stay one step ahead of the law as they escaped capture time and again. His one blind spot was Parker, who was intent on becoming famous and fed on the alluring media attention, pushing Barrow to commit riskier and more dangerous crimes to generate bigger headlines and make them the most famous criminals of the modern era.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Bruce Beresford (Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy), the star-studded cast also includes Academy Award-winners Holly Hunter (The Piano) and William Hurt (Kiss of the Spiderwoman)
