Movie Info

Rebecca Hall stars in director Antonio Campos' third feature film, CHRISTINE, the story of a woman who finds herself 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 ), 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) 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 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). Directed by Antonio Campos ("Simon Killer," "AfterSchool"). Written by Craig Shilowich. Produced by Shilowich & Melody C. Roscher ("The WonderClub"). Executive Produced by Sean Durkin & Josh Mond (Borderline Films) and Robert Halmi Jr. & Jim Reeve (Great Point Media).
