Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart star in this gripping feminist interpretation of the 1892 Lizzie Borden murders.

In a small town in Massachusetts in 1892, Lizzie Borden (Sevigny) lives with her wealthy father and step-mother. When their new housemaid Bridget (Stewart) arrives, they develop a loving friendship that soon blossoms into a secret romance. But her father’s strict rules and violent outbursts force Lizzie and Bridget to breaking point, and together they forge a dark, unsettling plan that erupts into violence.

With incredible cinematography and a sharply written script, this riveting psychological thriller is a brutal exploration of how power can break the human spirit.
