What is the effect of Jiquan's strong joint performance of BL?

This film is full of gimmicks: the famous murder mystery, the theme of rebelling against the patriarchy, plus the lily elements, the senior Jiquan boss + the famous out-of-the-closet actor, the hunting scene of naked killing, the combination is attractive enough. But I personally feel that the energy is useless in the right place.

Christine is not very suitable for this role. The role of the maid should be a weak woman who comes to work in a big family, has no culture, and is submissive. Although she worked hard to show a weak posture, her facial features were three-dimensional and heroic, which still caused the character's aura to be strong.

Chloe Sevigny, who I like very much, is a senior Jiquan boss. He has played T and P and played a women's clothing boss. As a screenwriter and director, he has also made short films about women, and he has a strong aura. But the character prototype should also look like a weak woman.

Which beauty do you think is more feminine? (laugh)

So these two leading actors, in such a film, have a feeling that they have nowhere to go, and they don't have a CP aura... It's obvious that both of them can cause Ji's cry when they stand there, but The ambiguous scenes in this film feel that the atmosphere is insufficient ( is it because the two are too aggressive? ).

From the 1970s to the present, this incident has been repeatedly brought to the screen. After a cursory check, there are several versions in 1975, 2006, 2012, 2014, and 2015, and the types are different.

As a biographical film, the focus of this film is not "whether it was killed" or "how to kill it", but "why it was killed", so although this film also has some bloody scenes, the atmosphere of the whole film is still depressing, and Not scary.

Earlier in the story, Lizzie secretly sold her family's belongings to a pawnshop. The pawnshop owner knew her father, and she was punished by his father. This way of resistance was too simple and rude, and even a little naive, which contrasted too much with the final, meticulous murder plan. Although the plot may be that Lizzie gradually became murderous under long-term oppression, the IQ before and after is too flexible...

This film was adapted from one of the top ten "criminal mysteries" in American history. Most of the plots were faithful to the description of reality. At that time, the jury believed that a woman from the upper class of society like Lizzie would not be such a cruel criminal, and she was eventually acquitted because of insufficient evidence. set her free. In addition to Liz, the rumoured to be the real murderer include her sister, her same-sex lover maid Bridget, and even her father's illegitimate child...

======== The following is a summary of the whole spoiler, watch carefully ========

In court: On August 4, 1892, there was a murder at Lizzie's house. Her stepmother and then her biological father were chopped to the head with an axe.

Lizzie lives in a big house with her father, stepmother, and sister, and her family is well-off. The family hired a new maid, Bridget. Lizzie couldn't get used to her stepmother's bad attitude towards servants, so she showed Bridget her book and taught her to read.

Lizzie has a very bad relationship with her father. The father was usually well-dressed but lewd, stingy, and very authoritarian. He suppressed his two biological daughters mentally and restricted their actions. Sister Emma endured it, but Lizzie kept fighting against her father.

Once she stole jewelry from the family to sell at a pawnshop, and the pawnshop owner told her father that her father killed her pigeons with an axe in front of her and forced Lizzie to eat them.

Lizzie went to the family lawyer and learned that her father had made her uncle John the guardian of her estate. The family has received threatening letters from time to time. Lizzie and her sister stumble upon the fact that her uncle had secretly placed the letter in order to make her dad feel threatened and get the property as soon as possible. Lizzie confronts her uncle, only to be intimidated by him.

Lizzie is sorry and ashamed to find out that her father has often molested Bridget at night. In this family, only she and the maid trust each other and depend on each other.

Lizzie and Bridget's mutual love is known to her dad. He forbade Lizzie from having any contact with Bridget and fired Bridge. Lizzie retorted, "After all, we're the same."

Afterwards, Lizzie secretly burned her father's will.

In court: Police want Lizzie to plead guilty to manslaughter, Emma says Lizzie is innocent. Bridget perjured Lizzie, but she was terrified. She didn't know what Lizzie wanted, she was afraid of such a Lizzie. John was frantically looking for a will for the property, of course, he couldn't find it, he went to the jail to find Lizzie. In this dispute, Lizzie finally prevailed, and she was no longer afraid of being threatened by her uncle to take away her inheritance.

The shot goes back to August 4, 1892 again.

At 9am, Lizzie asked Bridget to lead her stepmother to the bedroom. She took off all her clothes and hacked her stepmother to death with an axe, then washed her body with blood and waited for her father to return.

She pretends to go out and plans to have Bridget do the same to kill her father, but Bridget backs down because she's too scared, and Lizzie rushes in and hacks her father to death. After getting rid of the blood on your body, smear the axe with pigeon blood and burn the handle of the axe. Then call the police.

In the end, Lizzie was found not guilty. Emma and Lizzie sever their sisterhood. Bridget moved to Montana and lived on a farm until his death at the age of 82. Lizzie was never married and lived alone until her death at the age of 67. Leaving most of the property to the Humane Society.
