Antonio Campos's 'Christine' opens October 21 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center: filmlinc.org/newreleases
Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Prestige) stars in director Antonio Campos’s chilling character study of Christine Chubbuck, a reporter who, in 1974, shot and killed herself on live TV at a local news station in Sarasota, Florida. As the film begins, she’s ambitious and principled, wanting to follow hard-hitting news, clashing with her boss (Tracy Letts) and harboring a crush on the station’s lead anchor (Michael C. Hall). Campos (Afterschool, Simon Killer) scrutinizes the details of Chubbuck’s life with patience, clarity, and a sense of dark humor. Supported by a brilliant ensemble cast, Hall gives a career-defining performance. Released by The Orchard.
