This two-part miniseries takes an hour longer than the 1967 film did to tell the story of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, here played by Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as a reluctant outlaw tormented by premonitions and a flirty, fame-obsessed fantasist, respectively.
The result is an efficient enough time-passer with a stellar supporting cast (Holly Hunter, William Hurt) that nonetheless adds little bar length to an already familiar tale.
A bold opening gambit has a bullet-riddled Barrow narrate his story from beyond the grave. Bruce Beresford’s (Driving Miss Daisy) melodrama could have used more such flourishes in the same grim vein.
