Bulldog Film Distribution Announce the UK Release Date of December 14 for Craig William Macneill’s Compelling Psychodrama LIZZIE
“…Gripping, well acted and sharply written…” - THE GUARDIAN
“The chemistry between Sevigny and Stewart is electric” - COLLIDER
“A haunting, horrifying romance” - THE WRAP
Bulldog Film Distribution have announced that the Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart starring LIZZIE hits Cinemas on December 14 following its International Premiere at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival!
LIZZIE is a compelling psychodrama based on the infamous 1892 axe murder of the Borden family in Fall River, Massachusetts. The film explores Lizzie Borden’s life, focusing on the period leading up to the murders and their immediate aftermath – and reveals many layers of the strange, fragile woman who stood accused of the brutal crime.
As an unmarried woman of 32, and a social outcast, Lizzie (Chloë 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 chance intimacy that blossoms into a wicked plan, and a dark, unsettling end.
Directed by Craig William Macneill and produced by Sevigny alongside Liz Destro and Naomi Despres, Lizzie is an enthralling investigation of a dark slice of history that has fascinated the world ever since – with captivating performances leading an evocative presentation of strained family relationships, an oppressive society and a secret, burgeoning romance, delivering rich slow-burn tension and emphatic, transfixing release.
Starring Chloë Sevigny, Kristen Stewart, Jamey Sheridan, Denis O’Hare and Fiona Shaw, LIZZIE hits Cinemas on December 14.
