Lifetime brings feature films straight from the news to the small screen all Memorial Day Weekend with the Ripped from the Headlines Movie Marathon, concluding with the premiere of "I Was Lorena Bobbitt" on Memorial Day at 8/7c. Look below to see the full schedule of movies.
Lorena Bobbitt became a household name and made tabloid headlines when after years of abuse by her husband, she cut off his penis with a knife in 1993. Now nearly 30 years later, Lorena tells her story, and hers alone, for the first time with Lifetime. This film follows her journey from a wide-eyed, immigrant bride to a battered wife into an unlikely media sensation. I Was Lorena Bobbitt also documents her ultimately emerging as a strong, thoughtful woman who has devoted her life to advocating for other abused women.
