Lizzie trailer: Chloë Sevigny brings the infamous killer to life
Roadside Attractions and Saban Films released the brand new trailer for their upcoming period drama, Lizzie, starring Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don’t Cry) as the renowned accused murderess Lizzie Borden and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga). Make sure you check out the Lizzie trailer in the player below and let us know what you think!
Written by Bryce Kass and based on the unsolved, much-speculated-about murders of the Borden parents, Lizzie explores the inner workings of the Borden household 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, Lizzie (Sevigny) is a social outcast trapped under her father’s austere and domineering control. When Bridget Sullivan (Stewart), a young maid desperate for work, comes to live with the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic, kindred spirit, and a chance intimacy that blossoms into a wicked plan, and a dark, unsettling end.
The film is rounded out by a star-studded cast including Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, Fear the Walking Dead), Denis O’Hare (Dallas Buyers Club, American Horror Story), Jeff Perry (Scandal), Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter) and Jamey Sheridan (Spotlight, Homeland).
The racy period drama Lizzie was directed by Craig William Macneill (Channel Zero, The Boy) and produced by Sevigny, Naomi Despres, and Liz Destro. The film was executive produced by Elizabeth Stillwell, Roxanne Fie Anderson, and Edward J. Anderson of Powder Hound Pictures.
Saban Films and Roadside Attractions will release the film in select theaters on September 14, 2018.
