'Lizzie'

Because who does not want to see Chloe Sevigny play Lizzie Borden?! Craig William Macneil's historical romance takes us back to the Borden household, where the future axe-murderess is already having some serious family issues. Then an Irish housemaid (Kristen Stewart) is hired, and Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in, shall we say, more ways than one. To say that there will be blood is a given – we know how this story ends – but Macneil & Co. seem less interested in true-crime salaciousness and far more focused on how forbidden desires left stifled in repressive-to-a-fault environments can lead to tragedy. And, yes, occasionally mass murder.
