Picks and Pans Review: Bonnie and Clyde: the True Story
Starring Tracey (Life Goes On) Needham and Dana (Twin Peaks) Ashbrook, this TV movie focuses on the teen years of two of the Depression's most celebrated outlaws. While Needham and Ashbrook make a captivating criminal couple, the script strays too often from its shaky premise: that adolescent angst about the future, complicated by being raised by single mothers, helped lead to the couple's later taste for crime. There are more questions raised than answered, and in the end True Story falls short of its good intentions.
