Rebecca Hall and Michael C. Hall star in this biographical drama directed by Antonio Campos. The film tells the story of Christine Chubbuck (Hall), a Sarasota television news reporter relentlessly pushing for a promotion at her male-dominated network. With her boss Michael (Tracy Letts) demanding she chase more exciting stories in a bid to boost ratings, Christine begins to feel the pressure as her determination to provide meaningful social justice reports coupled with her lack of on-screen personality begin to damage her chances of achieving her goals. After then turning down the advances of her co-worker and long-term love interest George (Hall), Christine's world begins to unravel as feelings of loneliness and depression begin to push her over the edge.

But it's not a depressing film: it is shot through with moments of humour, and features extremely likeable supporting performances from Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts and the great J. Smith-Cameron as Christine's hippy mother. The directing is first class, and this is an astonishingly mature film from such a young director. But most of all this is Rebecca Hall's achievement. She is in almost every frame, and she shows us so many sides of Chubbuck's character: smart, driven, naïve, sardonic, childlike, desperate. . . it's all there, and it adds up to a hugely sympathetic portrait of a woman whose submerged demons ultimately get the better of her.

Brilliantly conceived period drama - one has a sense this film was made in the time it was set. Terrible sense of empathy at Christine's frustration. Great movie.Published 1 month ago by Mr O D R Honeywill
