We’re proud to present FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, an on-going showcase featuring some of 2016’s most impressive, critically acclaimed, and soon to be nominated films that you may have been remiss in watching during their initial runs. Now it’s your time to catch up and be part of the conversation! 

 

Rebecca Hall stars in director Antonio Campos’ third feature film, CHRISTINE, the story of a woman who finds herself caught in the crosshairs of a spiraling personal life and career crisis. 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 ), 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) 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.

 

Critic Quotes:

“Something of a tour de force for star Rebecca Hall who, in keeping with the film’s approach, does so much while seeming to do so little.” – Detroit News

“Striding through this, and commanding almost every scene, is Rebecca Hall, who earns our sympathy, as the best actors do, by steeling herself not to plead for it.” – New Yorker

“It turns a probing and revelatory lens on the soul-destroying task of chasing eyeballs with sensationalistic news, long before clickbait became a journalistic mission.” – Toronto Star

“Hall makes it impossible to look away from this portrait of a woman brought to the heartbreaking conclusion that she’s beyond hope.” – The Hollywood Reporter

The life and times of an unfortunately infamous person now comes into sharper focus. “Christine” doesn’t glorify suicide, but it does explain what pushed one woman over the edge, and it honors who she was before it happened.” – The Playlist
