Christine: Directed by Antonio Campos, Starring Rebecca Hall

Centering on a woman who finds herself going through personal life and career crisis, Christine, starring Rebecca Hall, marks director Antonio Campos’ third feature film.

Always the smartest person in the room at her news station in Sarasota, Florida, Christine feels destined for bigger things and relentlessly pursues a promotion to a higher profile market.  But with an eye for nuance and interest in social justice in 1974, Christine finds herself constantly butting heads with a station manager (Tracy Letts) who pushes her toward “juicier” stories as the drive for ratings has begun to seep into the culture.

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) 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.

Based on true events, Campos’ intimate and sensitive portrait of a woman on the brink is grounded by Hall’s impeccable and transformative performance as Christine.  Rounding out the supporting cast are superlative performances by Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), Tracy Letts (“Homeland,” Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright), Maria Dizzia (“Orange Is The New Black”), Timothy Simons (“Veep”) and J. Smith-Cameron (“Margaret”).

Directed by Antonio Campos (“Simon Killer,” “AfterSchool”).

Written by Craig Shilowich.

Produced by Shilowich & Melody C. Roscher (“The Wonder Club”).

Executive Produced by Sean Durkin & Josh Mond (Borderline Films) and Robert Halmi Jr. & Jim Reeve (Great Point Media).
