Creepy look at the 1892 Lizzie Borden murder mystery. Dad’s a rapist. Stepmom cold as ice but the new housekeeper (Stewart) seems like a sweet accomplice. The movie is beautifully shot, a story well told & well acted but the pace is slow. This was one pretty screwed up household! B
In 1892 Lizzie Borden lives a quiet life in Massachusetts under the strict rules established by her father. Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in the live-in maid, Bridget, and friendship soon blossoms into a secret romance. But tension mounts in the Borden household, leading to a violent breaking point.
