    In the action-drama Public Enemies, acclalmed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johny Deep, Christlan Bale and Academy Award winner Marlon Cotillard in the story of legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger (Depp) - the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover's fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvls (Bale), and a folk hero to a nation besieged by financial hardship and ready to celebrate a mythic figure.
    No one could stop Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audaclous jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone-from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression.
    But while the adventures of Dillinger's gang-later including the soclopathic Baby Face Nelson (Billy Crudup) his on the idea of exploiting the outlaw's capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI. He made Dillinger America's first Public Enemy Number One and sent In Purvis, the dashing "Clark Gable of the FBI."
    However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis' men In wild chase and shootouts. Only after imorting a crew of lawmen from the Dallas bureau and orchestrating epic betrayals-from the infamous "Lady in Red" to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nitti-were Purvis, the FBI and their new crew of gunfighters able to close in on Dillinger.
