Director Antonio Campos ('Simon Killer', 'Afterschool') provides a harrowing insight into 1970s television reporter Christine Chubbuck’s tumultuous life. Join Rebecca Hall ('Vicky Cristina Barcelona', 'The Prestige') as she brings to life the true story of Chubbuck’s struggles with severe depression and a challenging career, in what critics are hailing as Hall’s best performance to date. Michael Hall ('Six Feet Under', 'Cold In July'), Tracy Letts ('The Big Short', 'Killer Joe'), Maria Dizzia ('While We’re Young', 'Margin Call') and Timothy Simons ('The Interview', 'Inherent Vice') collaborate to create a rollercoaster of emotions as we follow the life of infamous Christine.

In 1974 Florida, 29-year-old on-air news reporter Chubbuck is both ruthlessly motivated and exceptionally intelligent. Despite her talents, she finds herself frequently at odds with her boss, who deviates from her passion in human-interest pieces and prioritises crime reporting, in the interest of ratings. Frustrated by the vacuous nature of her job, her lonely private life and deteriorating relations with her boss, Christine delivers the ultimate segment, live on air.

Hall and the talented cast deliver an intricate performance of tragedy and, in places, humour, piecing together the story behind the notorious Christine.
