Christine

“If it bleeds, it leeds.”

Inspired by the true story of TV reporter Christine Chubbuck, Rebecca Hall (The Prestige, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) stars in director Antonio CamposCHRISTINE, the tragic and fascinating story of a woman caught in the crosshairs of a spiraling personal life and career crisis.

Christine, always the smartest person in the room at her local Sarasota, Florida news station, feels like she is destined for bigger things and is relentless in her pursuit of an on-air position in a larger market. As an aspiring newswoman with an eye for nuance and an interest in social justice, she finds herself constantly butting heads with her boss (Tracy Letts, Homeland), who pushes for juicier stories that will drive up ratings. Plagued by self-doubt and a tumultuous home life, Christine’s diminishing hope begins to rise when an on-air co-worker (Michael C. Hall,
Dexter) initiates a friendship which ultimately becomes yet another unrequited love. Disillusioned as her world continues to close in on her, Christine takes a dark and surprising turn.

Based on true events, Campos’ intimate and sensitive portrait of a woman on the brink is grounded by Hall’s impeccable and transformative performance. Also starring Maria Dizzia (Orange Is The New Black), Timothy Simons (Veep).

“Rebecca Hall gives one of the great performances of the year as the title character in Christine, an intense, stomach-churning, unblinking drama.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“Rising on the strength of Rebecca Hall‘s gripping performance, CHRISTINE offers an empathetic look at its subject’s public career and painful private life.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“A gripping, often agonizing character study with a tour de force performance by Rebecca Hall.” (Newsday)

CHRISTINE (Antonio Campos, 2016 / 123 mins / 18A) Inspired by the  true story of Christine Chubbuck, an ambitious TV reporter struggling with depression and professional frustrations in the changing newsroom environment of the 1970s. Relentlessly motivated to succeed as a career woman, and despite knowing her own talent, Christine is nevertheless daunted from workplace competition for a promotion, unrequited love for a coworker and a tumultuous home life. With ratings in the cellar, the station manager issues a mandate to deliver juicier and more exploitative stories,  firmly at odds with Christine’s serious brand of issue-based journalism. To accomplish her goals, she must overcome her self-doubt and give the people what they want.
