Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3) leads this chilling newsroom drama from director Antonio Campos (Simon Killer), following the true story of 1970s TV reporter Christine Chubbuck. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2016.... More

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, The Big Short), 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, TV's Dexter) 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.Hide
