Lionsgate Home Entertainment has just added Lizzie to its line-up, scheduling a Blu-Ray Disc and DVD release of the modern retelling of the Lizzie Borden story for December.
Lizzie is a psychological thriller that reveals many layers of the strange and fragile Lizzie Borden, who stood accused of the infamous 1892 axe murder of her family in Fall River, Massachusetts. An unmarried woman of 32 and a social outcast, Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) lives a claustrophobic life under her father’s cold and domineering control. When Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), a young maid, comes to work for the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic, kindred spirit—and a secret intimacy soon blossoms into a wicked plan.
The film is based on the true events of the infamous, shocking, and bloody Borden family murders and was an official Sundance Film Festival 2018 selection. The release will feature the 105-minute movie itself, along with the Featurette “Understanding Lizzie” as a bonus feature.
Lizzie will arrive in stores on December 11 and can be yours for $21.99 on Blu-Ray Disc or $19.98 on DVD.
