‘Lizzie Borden took an axe / And gave her mother forty whacks. / When she saw what she had done, / She gave her father forty-one.’ Immortalised in rhyme, the Borden murders of 1892 continue to hold a grim fascination – despite the real Lizzie’s acquittal. Now comes a ‘sensitive and stylish take on the legend’ (The Hollywood Reporter), starring Chloë Sevigny as Lizzie – a woman trapped in a suffocating household with a tyrannical and unloving father and a chilly stepmother. The arrival of a new maid (Kristen Stewart) brings matters to a head, especially after she and Lizzie start to explore their attraction to one another.
