About the Movie
CHRISTINE is the 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 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 social justice, she finds herself constantly butting heads with her boss, 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 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, director Antonio Campos’ intimate and sensitive portrait of a woman on the brink is grounded by Rebecca Hall’s impeccable and transformative performance as Christine. Rounding out the supporting cast are superlative performances by Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), Tracy Letts (“Homeland,” Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright), Maria Dizzia (“Orange Is The New Black”), Timothy Simons (“Veep”) and J. Smith-Cameron (“Margaret”).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: By turns coolly observed and disquietingly compassionate - qualities that also describe Rebecca Hall's brilliant central performance - the movie drifts alongside its subject, Charon-like, through the hell of her last weeks.
Fresh: The narrow scope and narrow determinism of the action in "Christine" is unfortunately matched by the narrow-albeit immensely skillful and committed-acting that Campos elicits from Hall.
Fresh: A gripping, often agonizing character study with a tour de force performance by Rebecca Hall.
Fresh: Rebecca Hall gives one of the great performances of the year as the title character in Christine, an intense, stomach-churning, unblinking drama.
Overlooked but excellent
This is a great film. Deserves more attention than it has received.
