Christine (15)

Biography, Drama

The story of Christine Chubbuck, a 1970s TV reporter struggling with depression and professional frustrations as she tries to advance her career.

The critical consensus

Dramatisation of the sad demise of Christine Chubbuck, featuring astonishing work from Rebecca Hall.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 23/01/2017

A disturbing, honest portrait of female neurosis and depression.

****(*)Christina Newland, Little White Lies, 26/01/2017

Antonio Campos’s Christine is the second feature about Christine Chubbuck to be released in a matter of months. It follows on from the recent documentary Kate Plays Christine but doesn’t come any closer than that film to explaining Chubbuck’s actions.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 25/01/2017

Impeccably played by Rebecca Hall, this is a thoughtful reflection on life’s casual cruelties and how little attitudes towards women have changed since Watergate.

****(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 26/01/2017

Rebecca Hall is magnetic as a Florida news anchor who killed herself on air in this haunting tale of depression, loneliness and misogyny that offers no easy get-outs.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 26/01/2017

Antonio Campos gives the true story of the American TV news reporter who killed herself on air its second, superior big-screen telling.
