Chloe Sevigny’s passion project is finally here, and it’s ready to premiere on the big screen. Sevigny has been working on this film since 2010 with screenwriter Bryce Kass. The project was first designed as a miniseries for HBO, but eventually turned into the feature film you see today.
Set in 1892, the indie film follows the notorious would-be “axe murderess Lizzie Borden (Sevigny), who was accused and acquitted of killing her father and stepmother in Fall River, Mass.”
The thriller co-stars Kristen Stewart as an Irish maid who comes to live with the Borden family and secretly develops a sexual relationship with Lizzie.
The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January and it’s scheduled to be released inside theaters September 14, 2018.
