Full film details

Lizzie (Chloë Sevingny) is 32, unmarried, and living in her family home. It’s 1892, and while technological progress may be being made in the town of Fall River, Massachusetts, Lizzie’s wealthy family are stuck in the past.

Lizzie’s father, Andrew Borden (Jamey Sheridan), maintains a tight grip over the women in his home. Despite Lizzie’s age and desire for freedom, her fainting spells are used as a reason to keep her indoors. Things couldn’t seem bleaker for the would-be adventurous woman, who never sees her life gaining meaning or light.

A young Irish woman named Bridget (Kristen Stewart) arrives at the family home. Desperate for work, she is employed as a handmaid. Despite the differences in their positions, Lizzie and Bridget quickly feel a spark, and find a passion even the most liberal in their society would look down upon.

One night, Andrew takes advantage of Bridget, leaving her violated and afraid. With only Lizzie to turn to, the two consider what revenge they can take on the household that keeps them both from finding true happiness…

Based on the story of Lizzie Borden, Lizzie is a jarring drama that showcases the acting talent of this accomplished cast. Chloë Sevingny (The Snowman) stars and produces, alongside co-star Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper).

Jamey Sheridan (Spotlight), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl) and Jay Huguley (12 Years a Slave) also flex their creative abilities to create a tense drama that will stick with you long after the credits have rolled.
