This year’s anniversary of Bonnie & Clyde (1967) got the whole Genesis crew thinking – a) when did we get so old? And b) What are our favourite films dealing with that classic trope – LOVERS ON THE RUN? We came up with a pretty snazzy shortlist (including the movie that started it all of course) and we’re happy to present a month of screenings highlighting the finest in crazed, killing couples and doomed romance across the highways of the USA!
Inspired by real-life killers Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugate, this tale of crime and love begins in a dead-end town. Teenage girl Holly angers her father when she begins dating an older and rebellious boy. After a conflict between Holly and her father erupts in murder, the young lovers are forced to flee. In the ensuing crime spree, they journey through the Midwest to the Badlands of Montana, eluding authorities along the way.
