Directed by Antonio Campos • 2016 • United States
Starring Rebecca Hall, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts
Rebecca Hall delivers an astonishing performance in this emotionally gripping look at the life of Christine Chubbuck, the Florida news anchor who, in 1974, made headlines with a shocking act that would go down in television infamy. With powerful empathy, CHRISTINE charts Chubbuck’s journey toward that fateful moment as she finds herself caught in the midst of personal and professional crises at a Sarasota news station where her brand of social-justice-oriented reporting seems to have no place. Between unrequited love, frustration at work, a tumultuous home, and self-doubt, Christine begins to spiral down a dark path.
