Lizzie is a biography thriller film written by Bryce Kass and directed by Craig William Macneill. It’s produced by Chloë Sevigny, Elizabeth Destro, Naomi Despres and the cinematography by Noah Greenberg.
Story: Based on the unsolved, much-speculated-about murders of the Borden parents, “Lizzie” explores the inner workings of the Borden household leading up to the murders and their immediate aftermath and reveals many layers of the strange, fragile woman who stood accused of the brutal crime. As an unmarried woman of 32, Lizzie (Sevigny) is a social outcast trapped under her father’s austere and domineering control. When Bridget Sullivan (Stewart), a young maid desperate for work, comes to live with the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic, kindred spirit, and a chance intimacy that blossoms into a wicked plan, and a dark, unsettling end.
