Ahead of its release next month, the first trailer has arrived online for upcoming thriller Lizzie. The film stars Chloe Sevigny as the notorious Lizzie Borden, a woman who in 1892 was tried and acquitted for the axe murders of her father and stepmother alongside Kristen Stewart as her housemaid and lover Bridget; watch it here…
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.
Lizzie is set for release on September 14th.
