"☆☆☆☆☆. Rebecca Hall astonishes. The performance of her career." Nigel M. Smith, The Guardian.
Based on true events, Christine is the intimate portrait of a woman on the brink of a spiraling personal life and career crisis. Christine (Rebecca Hall) feels like she is destined for bigger things at her local Sarasota, Florida news station, and is relentless in her pursuit of a promotion. As an aspiring newswoman with 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, TV's Dexter) initiates a friendship which ultimately becomes yet another unrequited love. Disillusioned as he world continues to close in on her, Christine takes a dark and surprising turn. -- (C) Sony Pictures, 2016, UK/USA.
