DESCRIPTION: (from Lifetime's press release, November 2013) The nursery rhyme "Lizzie Borden took an ax...and gave her mother forty whacks...when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one" has been folklore for generations. But, in fact, it was Lizzie Borden -- one of the most legendary figures in American history - who first whetted the public's voracious interest in scandalous crimes in the 1800s with her own gruesome story involving the brutal murder of her parents. Starring Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award nominee Christina Ricci (Monster), Golden Globe(R) Nominee Billy Campbell (The Killing) and Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Clea DuVall (Argo), the Lifetime Original Movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax premieres January 25, 2014, at 8pm ET/PT.
