Critic Reviews for Lizzie

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

I spent most of the running time waiting for Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) to grab the hatchet and wrap things up already.

It's a simple story made to rouse modern hearts, and the performances and cinematography are so good, the film nearly pulls off the trick.

January 22, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The problem is the enervated pacing and ludicrous depiction - after much fancy skipping back and forth in time - of the murders themselves.

At least it looks good.

January 22, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Lizzie offers speculative explanation, but its theories end up answering a different question: What if Heavenly Creatures was kind of boring?

A sensitive and stylish take on the legend.
