The weekend saw an exclusive launch event for the new and innovative A&E television drama, Bonnie & Clyde. The two-part, four hour movie event - not quite a miniseries - stars Emile Hirsch ('Into The Wild') and newcomer Holliday Grainger as the titular bandits who earned notoriety during the Great Depression in the USA.
'Bonnie & Clyde' Is First Three-Network Premiere.
At a glance, the drama looks achingly stylish as the pair show that not only do they know how to rob a bank, but understand the importance of dressing well. Though history remembers the couple through a glamorised Hollywood lens, the pair were dangerous criminals who murdered and stole during one of the toughest eras of American history.

Dark new New Zealand drama 'Top of the Lake' premieres but what does 'Mad Men' actress Elisabeth Moss think of her new detective role?
Top of the Lake has debuted on British TV this weekend, establishing Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss as a truly fine television actress in her role after secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson. The six-part series comes from Jane Campion who directed 1993 The Piano and who gives the new BBC2 bleak drama about child abuse a film-like feel. Moss plays the role of detective Robin Griffin who, although usually based in Sydney, Australia, returns home to the village of Laketop of New Zealand's south island to visit her mother who is suffering with cancer. Whilst home in the idyllic, mountain-framed town, Griffin is called upon to help investigate the case of Tui Mitcham (Jacqueline Joe); a 12 year-old girl who is found to be five months pregnant with her angry, Scottish, criminal kingpin father Matt Mitcham (Peter Mullan) suspected.
Elisabeth Moss To Take On A New Detective Character In Dark TV Series Top of the Lake.
The first episode sets the scene of the eerie, lawless town perfectly, with Moss fitting in her unglamorous role as Kiwi detective, with the Los Angeles-born actress mastering the tricky New Zealand accent for her new character. The Guardian's Sarah Dempster evaluates the engaging new series as one that harbours many clichés yet is a "beautifully shot mystery, wrapped in an unpleasant thriller that's also a morality tale" The Telegraph's Serena Davies also gives the BBC2 drama a thumbs up for being "flawlessly beautiful" in its setting and praises lead actors Peter Mullan, Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss for cementing the awkward, backwood, small-town feel that makes it clear to the viewer why Griffin decided to seek friendlier climes in the Australian cities.
Daniel Day-Lewis was sounded out to play lead character Vincent Vega in Quentin Tarantino's classic 1994 crime-thriller Pulp Fiction, though Michael Madsen was eventually favored, who himself had to give way for John Travolta due to scheduling conflicts. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Tarantino revealed producer Harvey Weinstein had the opportunity to land Oscar winner Day-Lewis for the role, though Quentin was adamant Vega should be played by his Reservoir Dogs pal Madsen.
An underprivileged mother (Gyllenhaal) determined to do the best for her child, takes action on discovering the failing situation of her daughter's inner city school. Her daughter cannot read and even comments that the school doesn't care about punctuality or the fact that many students are suffering and struggling with learning difficulties. After her daughter is punished and locked in a closet by an incompetent teacher because she didn't 'follow the rules', the mother decides enough is enough and enlists the help of a desperate teacher (Davis), whose son is also struggling to learn to read and write, to help her take over the school. They put everything on the line to battle through the teacher's union, challenging and incapable teachers, and a sceptical principal and make the school (and therefore the violent gang and drug ridden neighbourhood) a better place for underprivileged children.
