Description

Presented in partnership with Iowa City Pride!

"Takes a ledgend and blows it up from the inside." - Ben Pearson, Slashfilm

"The chemistry between Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart is electric." - Matt Goldberg, Collider

This psychological thriller reveals many layers of the strange and fragile Lizzie Borden, who stood accused of the infamous 1892 axe murder of her family in Fall River, Massachusetts. An unmarried woman of 32 and a social outcast, Lizzie (Chloe Sevigny) lives a claustrophobic life under her father's cold and domineering control. When Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), a young maid, comes to work for the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic, kindred spirit, and a secret intimacy soon blossoms into a wicked plan.
