What a joke. They may have gotten the vehicles and clothing right for the era but that's where the realism ends. A disclaimer stating that this is a fictional account of the short lives of Bonnie & Clyde should have been part of the introduction. The actress, Holliday Grainger, playing the role of Bonnie Parker, missed completely. She looked more like a young "Jackie O" then Bonnie Parker; also, her English accent seemed to mask her attempt to carry the southern drawl needed to carry the part. As for Emile Hirsch, playing the part of Clyde Barrow; this was missed-cast. He acted more like a Leonardo DiCaprio want-a-be then Clyde Barrow. (Sorry for the comparison Leonardo). Emile, don't quit your day job.
