‘Christine’ Exclusive Clip: Rebecca Hall Shines as Troubled TV Reporter

Don’t lose sight of what you have.

Rebecca Hall Christine

One of the most talked-about films to premiere at Sundance this year was Antonio Campos’ “Christine.” Written by Craig Shilowich, the film stars Rebecca Hall as television reporter Christine Chubbuck who tragically took her own life live on the air in 1974.

IndieWire has an exclusive clip from the film which features Hall going up to a couple who seem “very much in love” and tells them they’d be perfect for a human interest story. “Sorry to interrupt, you just made my night,” she tells the couple before she leaves. “Don’t lose sight of what you have here.”

The movie received rave review from critics who praised Hall for her performance as the titular character battling depression. Calling it “one of the most enthralling and compelling films we saw at Sundance,” The Orchard secured North American rights shorty after its premiere.

IndieWire’s Eric Kohn wrote in his B review that it’s “an expertly crafted noir-like depiction of Chubbuck’s descent into psychological duress, Campos’ grim character study makes up for an occasionally stifling icy tone with a stunning lead performance by Hall, who turns the would-be suicidal anchor into a figure worthy of empathy rather than outright pity.”

Hall can next be seen in Brian Crano’s “Permission” and Oren Moverman’s “The Dinner.” She’s recently signed on and is filming “Professor Marston & the Wonder Women,” the unconventional story of the creator of the DC Comics heroine.

“Christine” is now in theaters. Check out the clip below.
