Story


The story of Fall River, Mass., resident Lizzie Borden, who finds herself on trial for the brutal murder with a hatchet-type weapon of her father, Andrew Jackson Borden, and his second wife, Abby Durfee Gray Borden, at their family home. She was acquitted at a trial, which drew national attention, though no one else was ever charged with the crime, which has remained unsolved. Despite being found guilty in the court of public opinion in her native town, at least in some circles, Borden lived in Fall River for the rest of her life.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..though it loses its way toward the end, a stylish rehashing of the facts -- along with healthy speculation -- make this account of the gruesome 1892 unsolved murders a worthwhile diversion..”
by Allison Keene [Hollywood Reporter]
“..Ricci makes a compelling and creepy Lizzie. She doesn't look like the real-life Lizzie, who was chunky and fair, but she certainly makes a believable murderess, and she's a lot of fun to watch..”
by Joyce Slaton [Common Sense Media]
“.."Lizzie Borden" takes an ax to many assumptions -- including the one that Lifetime movies aren't worth watching..”
by Diane Werts [Newsday]
