A taut, quiet and rigidly paced psychological drama based on the infamous 1892 murders of the Borden family.
In small-town Massachusetts in 1892, Lizzie (Chloe Sevigny) lives in a state of more-or-less repressed mutual hostility with her dictatorial and penny-pinching father (Jamey Sheridan) and her dour stepmother (Fiona Shaw). 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 Macneill explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.
