On the morning of July 15, 1974, Christine Chubbuck, a rising 29-year-old television reporter in Sarasota, Florida, went to work, sat at the newscaster's desk, and read the news. It was a broadcast like any other, until she stopped abruptly and shot herself on live television. The true and tragic story of Christine is the basis of Antonio Campos’s (MARTHA, MARCY, MAY, MARLENE) latest film, a riveting glimpse into Christine’s life and the events leading up to her tragic ending. Rebecca Hall’s performance is hypnotic, tracing her professional ambition and frustration, her unrequited love for a co-worker, and her inner torment with brilliant subtlety and sensibility for such a complex character and story.
