After airing on the A&E Network last month, fans can now own the hit two-night mini-series Bonnie and Clyde on Blu-ray and DVD starting today, January 28. Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger star as the legendary bank robbers, who turned from common criminals to national sensations with the help of the media. We have an exclusive featurette with stars Holly Hunter (Emma Parker) and Elizabeth Reaser (P.J. Lane), who explain how desperately Americans needed entertainment during that time period, so they turned to stories about Bonnie and Clyde instead of more depressing tales. Take a look at this behind-the-scenes featurette you can't find anywhere else, which includes historic headlines that show just how famous this duo really was.
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. Fueled 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. Also starring Academy Award winners Holly Hunter (Best Actress, 1993, The Piano) and William Hurt (Best Actor, 1985, Kiss of the Spider Woman), Bonnie and Clyde is powerful, gripping entertainment.
