Bonnie and Clyde
The infamous depression-era true crime romance between Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow begins when Clyde attempts to steal Bonnie’s mother’s car. Bonnie’s intrigue builds into infatuation. The young couple in love embarks on a crime spree throughout the country, robbing banks and stealing cars with the Barrow gang until their antics escalate into fierce violence. Strongly influenced by the taboo-breaking French New Wave film movement, Bonnie and Clyde was widely adored by young audiences of the New Hollywood era. It was one of the first one hundred films selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The screening will feature a pristine new 4K restoration. Introduction by William Little (UVA)
