Roadside Attractions and Saban Films have released a trailer for forthcoming biopic, Lizzie.
Directed by Craig William Macneill, the movie stars Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart and tells the story of Lizzie Borden, who in 1892 was accused and eventually acquitted of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe.
Here’s the synopsis:
“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.”
