In a small town in Massachusetts in 1892, Lizzie Borden lives with her wealthy father and step-mother. When their new housemaid Bridget arrives, they develop a loving friendship that soon blossoms into a secret romance. But her father’s strict rules and violent outbursts force Lizzie to breaking point, and the rest, as they say, is history. With incredible cinematography and a sharply written script, this riveting psychological thriller is a brutal exploration of how power can break the human spirit. The fact that it is based on the true story gives it an extra edge.
