First Friday Matinee: Bonnie and Clyde
Join us for our screening of Bonnie and Clyde (1967). Producer and star Warren Beatty had to convince Warner Brothers to make this movie, and then it went on to become their second highest grossing film at the time. It also caused major controversy by portraying the two main protagonists as anti-heroes and by redefining how violence is used in cinema. It turned both Beatty and Faye Dunaway into stars. Directed by Arthur Penn. Also starring Michael J. Pollard and Gene Hackman.
