The true crime case that shocked a nation is now the thrilling movie event Lizzie Borden Took An Axe, available on DVD 18th August 2014 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award nominee Christina Ricci (TV's Pan Am) gives a riveting lead performance in the suspenseful tale of Lizzie Borden, a young American woman accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe in 1892, and whose subsequent trial gave birth to an American obsession with the scandalous and sordid.

Directed by acclaimed independent film and television director Nick Gomez (TV's The Sopranos), and featuring a high-calibre supporting cast, including Golden Globe® Nominee Billy Campbell (TV's Helix), Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Clea DuVall (Argo) and Gregg Henry (Payback), Lizzie Borden Took An Axe brings a chilling American legend to life and dares to answer the question that has haunted America for over 122 years... did Lizzie really do it?

The film was written by Stephen Kay (The Mod Squad) and produced by Sony Pictures Television for Lifetime Television. Judith Verno (TV's Masters of Sex) serves as executive producer with Michael Mahoney (TV's Bag of Bones) producing.

A sweltering hot day in Massachusetts, 1892, is pierced by the brutal double murder of Mr. and Mrs. Borden that would stun the nation. Lizzie (Christina Ricci), a wholesome Sunday school teacher and Mr. Borden's youngest daughter, quickly becomes the prime suspect. Now, as her lawyer Andrew Jennings (Billy Campbell) proclaims her innocence, the original good-girl-gone-bad will stand trial in one of the most gripping, gruesome mysteries of all time. Her name will forever live in infamy and the eerie children's rhyme will continue to haunt those that know the story, but the truth is anything but clear.
