Bonnie and Clyde was reinvented in an updated film released in 2013,taking a non-fictional story and over dramatizing it into a cult fiction movie. The main characters Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger) and Clyde Barrow (Emile Hirsch) are two people who partake in one of the most villainous bank-robbing crime streaks in history, although some historians would disagree. Bonnie and Clyde thought it was right for them to kill and rob people of their goods to help them survive the great depression. While the movie was entertaining it focused more on an unrealistic over dramatization of the true story of Bonnie and Clyde and because of that many key details were overlooked. Bonnie and Clyde were two people who came together as partners in crime during the 1930’s in an era of moral decay and during the enforcement of prohibition through federal state and local agencies. It was a period in history where the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. One of the most influential events to happen during this time was the Great Depression. Bonnie Parker, born October 1,1910 was a young woman working as a waitress in a café. At that time she would have been dressed to meet the “roaring 20’s” apparel, possibly wearing the shorter dresses above the ankle, and her hair displaying the fashionable “boy cut bob”. Evidently she was a sharp, clever and beautiful young woman. Bonnie was truly an exhibitionist who deliberately performed undue attention to herself specifically for public viewing.
