Chloë Sevigny has been trying to get a Lizzie Borden biopic off the ground since 2010, but after morphing from TV mini-series to big screen feature, her passion project finally premiered at Sundance back in January and now Saban Films and Roadside Attractions are bringing it to theatres next month. Lizzie stars Sevigny in the lead role as the notorious woman accused of killing her father and stepmother with an axe in 1892 Fall River, Massachusetts, while Kristen Stewart plays the family’s housemaid Bridget Sullivan with whom she had a relationship. Directed by Craig William Macneill (The Boy), the movie brings a feminist perspective to the true story although it is said to be a little more subtle and restrained than one might expect. Lizzie hits select theatres on Sept. 14th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
