Sending an exhilarating jolt through the American consciousness with its then-groundbreaking depiction of bloody onscreen violence, BONNIE AND CLYDE electrified audiences with its romanticized true story of the titular bank robbers. Even now, BONNIE AND CLYDE astonishes with the way in which it blows apart cinematic conventions, especially in Dede Allen?s jagged editing style. Bolstered further by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway's smoldering chemistry and Estelle Parsons' batty Oscar-winning performance, BONNIE AND CLYDE set the stage for all action films to follow and feels as fresh as ever today.
Estelle Parsons is an actress best known for BONNIE AND CLYDE (Oscar win), RACHEL, RACHEL (Oscar nom), WATERMELON MAN, and I NEVER SANG FOR MY FATHER, along with ROSEANNE and THE CONNORS. Her stage work has garnered her four Tony nominations, and she was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame.
