Craig William Macneill’s ‘Lizzie’, which is based on the infamous 1892 axe murder of the Borden family that Lizzie Borden was accused of, is one of the films I am looking forward to seeing as it has a strong cast, led by Academy Award Nominee Chloë Sevigny.
According to the synopsis:
“Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don’t Cry, “Big Love”) stars as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”) explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.”
