It’s a tale that’s been told hundreds of times before and in this version it’s Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart bringing us the tale of the notorious axe murderer. Just in time for the axe murder anniversary on August 4, Roadside Attractions has released the trailer for Lizzie which screened earlier this year at Sundance.
Bryce Klass’ screenplay explores the Borden household leading up to the murders. Sevigny plays Borden and Stewart plays housemaid Bridget Sullivan. Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in Sullivan and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act.
Watch Sevigny and Stewart in this tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.
Lizzie is released on September 14
