In the latest episode of Ellissinema, Sean dives into the Shudder Exclusive Lizzie, directed by Craig William Macneil.
“Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don’t Cry, “Big Love”) stars as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”) explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.”
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”).
