The real story of infamous Lizzie Burden who killed her father and stepmother according to the case study and the mystery behind the events is what made in the film Lizzie which is releasing in theatres for the upcoming weekend. The romantic thriller film has gained some curiosity among the audience for its mysterious dark treatment suggested in the trailer and to know the story of Lizzie Burden and the axe murders of her parents.
The movie was screened in Sundance film festival and got thumbs up for the story and the way characters have been portrayed in the film. After the critics' premiere show held recently, the movie is getting a mixed response with generally average reviews praising the performances while the engaging factor and pace of the film is said as the negative points for the film.
Chloë Sevigny and Kirsten Stewart play the lead roles while Sevigny who is also a producer of the film played the Lizzie role and Stewart played as the maid at Burden’s home. The way they both maintain a chemistry in the film is pleasing and creates an artsy mood on the movie that takes a different track on the story with hard-hitting suspense.
The understated performance of Seigny and a subtle characterisation for Kirsten Stewart highlights the movie watching experience in the mid of film lacking some sparkling moments that the story demands and provide space if taken in a different way with a different writing technique. Apart from all, the film surely makes a positive impression while testing of audience’s patience is the only concern in the romantic thriller melodrama directed by Craig William Macneill.
