    Could've been so much better but incredibly boring. Both actresses underutilized as is the lesbian side of this take. Historical drama was never so dull.

    Three stars simply for Kristen Stewart. The official Lizzie Borden Cinematic Universe ranking is: 1) Elizabeth Montgomery for ABC 2) Christina Ricci for Lifetime 3) Chloe Sevigny for movie theaters

    Not at all like the real story and just very poor production

    Apparently not quite like it happened but nice film anyway. Hypocrisie was the rule at the time.

    I thought this was very well acted, and a different take on a mystery that the passage of time has not let fade.

    I don't know how you take one of the most compelling murder mysteries in American history, remix it with forbidden lesbian romance, and make a boring film, but they sure managed to.

    Very dry film about a famous crime! Could have been such a creepy story, but it turned into a snooze fest. I don't know what the director tries to explain here. The crime, the motivation, the physilogical side of it or what? Seems everything is not getting anywhere. A waisted potential story the acting is very flat, no emotion not even the hate. I can't feel anything from them.

    I wasn't expecting much but Sevigny and Stewart's performances blew me away! Yes, this is a feminist interpretation of the Lizzie Borden story but done in a way that feels raw and real rather than forced.

    It loses sight of the sisters relationship and gives few characters but Lizzie anything to do.

    Sorry to say but I found this boring, uneventful & consider it to be a poor representation of true events that remain a mystery to this day.
