Lizzie is a compelling psychodrama based on the infamous 1892 axe murder of the Borden family in Fall River, Massachusetts, focusing on the period leading up to the murders and their immediate aftermath – and revealing many layers of the strange, fragile woman who stood accused of the brutal crime.
As an unmarried woman of 32, and a social outcast, Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) lives a claustrophobic life under her father’s cold and domineering control. When Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), a young maid, comes to work for the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic spirit and a chance intimacy that blossoms into a wicked plan - and a dark, unsettling end.
Directed by Craig William Macneill, Lizzie is an enthralling investigation of a dark slice of history that has fascinated the world – with captivating performances leading an evocative presentation of strained family relationships, an oppressive society and a secret, burgeoning romance.
