Releasing into an environment where its story feels both relevant and very of its time, Lizzie is a curious mix of genres, and certainly more graphic than you'd expect, but never coheres into a compelling whole.
The leading ladies are superb. Sevigny's career has been all about taking risks and experimenting from the beginning, and she's a natural fit for this daring, mostly successful big-screen take on the alleged murderess.
You also have to appreciate positive things like the music and photography, in addition to the art direction, that make Lizzie a good film that, without a doubt, could have been better. [Full review in Spanish]
