One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
In 1892, after the Borden family welcomes a new Irish maid called Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), she and Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) become friends. The friendship between these women becomes something more, even as Lizzie's relationship with her own parents unravels at a frightening level.Written by
Apart from Lizzie Borden, Bridget Sullivan, Emma Borden and John Morse have also been speculated to be suspects in the murders. See more »
The end of the film states that Emma and Lizzie had a rift "soon after" the trial and became estranged, but it was actually 12 years later that Emma separated from Lizzie and moved out of their house forever. No one knows for sure what the rift was about, but it's believed by many that Emma discovered Lizzie really was guilty of the murders. See more »

Can Be Lurid & Gruesome But the Acting Kept Me Engaged & Interested
The acting of Chloe Sevigny, Kristen Stewart, and Jamey Sheridan carries this film, as I see it. It's the latest interpretation of what happened on August 4th, 1892, in Fall River, Massachusetts, when the sensational axe murders of Andrew and Gabby Borden occurred in their home.
The movie is quite slow paced, and has several lurid, gruesome, and violent scenes perpetrated against both humans and animals. There's also a concurrent theme of sexual molestation, as well as graphic nudity in the final 25 minutes or so of the film.
Overall, this film won't appeal to everyone and can be difficult to watch at times, but, for me, the fine acting was enough to keep me engaged.
