Together with Clyde's brother Buck(Gene Hackman), his wife Blanche(Estelle Parsons) - an unwilling accomplice - and a precocious youth named CW Moss(Pollard) they have shake up the country with a trail of cold blooded crimes.
The review of this Movie prepared by Biswa

This is a story of criminals on the run in the 1930's. There is romance as Bonnie falls in love and chooses a life of crime with robber Clyde.
A sad ending as the 'laws' catch up with them, but all in all a brilliant film.
The review of this Movie prepared by Megan Westley

This controversial film follows the crime spree of Bonnie and Clyde during the Depression-era West and Dustbowl. Violence never before seen on such a scale was one of its main components, not to mention subject matter and intermixing humor and graphic violence. A good date movie, except for the end.
