Kristen Stewart & Chloë Sevigny Are Taking Lizzie Borden Biopic To Sundance
Published on December 02, 2017
The two star in the biopic Lizzie, which takes a closer look at Lizzie Borden, a teenage girl who was accused of murdering her father and her stepmother in 1892 only to be found not guilty in a trial that was basically the O.J. Simpson trial of its day. The psychological thriller attempts to show a more complex side of Lizzie, played by Stewart, that could explain why she may have committed such a heinous crime. To do this, the film delves into Lizzie's relationship with Sevigny's character, Bridget Sullivan, who was the family’s housemaid and Lizzie's alleged romantic partner.
