By Crime HQAugust 6, 2018
Lizzie Borden took an ax
And gave her mother 40 whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father 41.
Roadside Attractions and Saban Films recently released the trailer for their upcoming dramatization of the legendary Lizzie Borden story. Starring Academy Award-nominated actor Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don’t Cry) as the accused murderer, Lizzie also features Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper), Denis O’Hare (Dallas Buyers Club), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl), Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter), Jeff Perry (Scandal), and Jamey Sheridan (Spotlight).
After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan, and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy) explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.
Lizzie was written by Bryce Kass and directed by Craig William Macneill. The film premieres in select theaters on September 14, 2018.
