LIFETIME MOVIE CHANNEL-CHRISTINA RICCI RENDITION OF LIZZIE BORDEN A COMPLETE MESS.

26 Jan
UPDATE:  Oh my.  The “national” audience really tears this up.  Gotta read THIS.
That Lifetime Movie Channel rendition of Lizzie Borden I’ve been harping about was everything I expected – and more. I wasn’t expecting a comedy. I was doing llttle “hash” marks on a piece of paper everytime they got something wrong be it dialog, scenery, who said what, etc. I stopped at 132 in the first hour. Seriously.
The soundtrack really made it seem like it was an intended comedy. I don’t mind when 2 real life characters are combined into one, i.e., Alice Russell was also Mrs. Churchill, but when they take an Officer Harrington and have his words coming from an Inspector Fleet, and when the secretive dress burning is done outside and night in full view of neighbors…..oh hell, I just can’t go on, except to say the schmaltzy ending wherein Lizzie confesses to Emma by an insidious, prolonged whispering in her ear was about as sophomoric cinema as you can get. Only those who don’t get out much to movies would think it a stunning ending.
Critics have panned this production and I am in agreement  with  most of what they say here:
