Synopsis:

1892: Headstrong Lizzie Borden (Chloë Sevigny) lives with her wealthy father, stepmother, and sister in Fall River, Massachusetts. Lizzie lovingly tends to her pet pigeons and is occasionally allowed out of her dimly lit, foreboding house, but otherwise lives under strict rules set by her domineering father. When her family hires live-in maid Bridget (Kristen Stewart), an uneducated Irish immigrant, the two find kindred spirits in one another. Their friendship begins with covert communication and companionship that blossoms into an intimate relationship. Meanwhile, tension builds in the Borden household, and Lizzie’s claustrophobic existence becomes increasingly more oppressive and abusive, leading to its inevitable breaking point.

Director Craig William Macneill (THE BOY) and writer Bryce Kass champion feminism and sexuality as they craft a compelling psychological thriller based on the unsolved, much-speculated-about murders of the Borden parents.
