A very raw, slow burn.
19 January 2019 | by Fixer-13257See all my reviews

A very raw, slow burn.

I wouldn't think of this as a Lizzie Borden retelling but of a suspense drama that happens to use the characters/names. In a world where men were notoriously brutal and cold, and women were viewed as sub-human - this captures a less than desirable era in time.... and perhaps the real Lizzie just snapped.

It is definitely a slow moving film, moving towards what some might call anti-climactic, but I liked how they filmed the killings and thought the end was worth the wait.
