Christina Ricci to Play Lizzie Borden in Lifetime Movie

08 Jun


Oh, lordy, here we go again.   

And again.

Yea.  Christina Ricci.  I’d say she captures the essence of Lizzie, wouldn’t you?  Assuming her eyes burn like a banchee whilst she wields a bloody AXE portraying that one-dimensional psychopath we’ve all come to love and adore.

The  Jodia Arias Lifetime movie is already done and ready to go – I think it airs in about a week or two.  Wonder how that ends?  LOL.

    I’m personally happy this case will be brought in the public light once again as it’s a fascinating piece of American history. The news release I read called it a ‘biopic’ so hopefully they will try to remain at least moderately true to the facts? If it spurs public curiosity about the case, even if true crime aficionados disagree about which ‘facts’ most likely represent the truth, it’s a good thing. At the very least, it’s certain to bring a gazillion hits to your fascinating website 🙂

      Thanks, Anna. I feel, however, it will be heavy on plot point drama and short on facts and certainly will not enlighten the audience to any depth of character or revelation of the qualities intrinsic to the real Lizzie Andrew Borden of Fall River. So far, only the book Parallel Lives….. has done that. Nonetheless those facinated with the case will be watching and there will be a spike in blog site hits as well as bookings at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast. 🙂

    Oh good! yet another thing we can pick apart, until the next book is written, remember how much fun everyone had with the Elizabeth Montgomery version? “Great Sets” “where is Uncle John?”
