I n 21st-century pop culture, Bonnie and Clyde are folk heroes. They inspired a viral rap battle and hovered over the Oscars debacle. But The Highwayman , a new Netflix film, paints them in a very different light. The movie, which debuted at South by Southwest, plays in select theaters starting March 15 and begins streaming on March 29, tells the story through the eyes of the two officers, Frank Hamer and Maney Gault played by Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson , who hunt them down as they leave a trail of death and wreckage across the South. In attempting to recast a story that has become ingrained in pop culture, however, The Highwaymen takes its own liberties with history. The Highwaymen opens with a dramatic breakout at Eastham Prison Farm, an infamously brutal jail in Texas where Barrow himself served time.
