Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother forty whacks?

 

It?s not just a disturbing nursery rhyme! Now the true story of how Lizzie Borden murdered her parents (or did she?) in the summer of 1892 is being brought to Lifetime, with Christina Ricci as the eponymous Lizzie. The true-crime case captured national attention when it first happened, proving that Americans obsession with scandalous and sordid tales is nothing new.

 

Lizzie Borden Took An Ax also stars Billy Campbell as Borden?s lawyer, and Clea DuVall (Argo) as her sister. The TV movie ? with the perfectly pun-y tagline ?It?s time to bury the hatchet? ? will premiere on Lifetime Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. ET.

Lizzie was acquittedin by a jury in 90 minutes. The evidence was sketchy, and several others (some family members) had motives.

Trying to get my hands on this as we speak.  CR is reprising her role as LB in an 8 part series titled "The Lizzie Borden Chronicles".

Not anymore. Now, Hollywood rewrites history and reality in one fell swoop! Now, Lizzie really was a crazed axed murderess!

 

*sigh* I get so sick of them doing crap like that...
