Loved the chemistry between Stewart and Sevigny and it is beautifully shot. The Borden house is almost a character in and of itself. With so many films that move so fast, it was refreshing to watch the tension build in the household slowly.
This film added so much more to the infamous story that I already knew. It brought it to life. While Sevigny may not be happy with the final product, as a fan of hers and Stewart's I was impressed. Also, great performance by Denis O'Hare as Lizzie's uncle.
