Christine – 2016

The death of Christine Chubbuck was a tragedy and it opened the eyes of the news media to the sensationalism to which they were prone. It also prompted a renewed awareness into suicide prevention and depression. Rebecca Hall gives a phenomenal performance as Chubbuck and displays an impressive subtlety in her acting that shows exactly how much can be done with only a little. The cinematography of the film is like the seventies resurgent and the film never loses that feel. The film was rich with great risks and even though the outcome is pretty well-known it didn’t take away from the journey. It’s just sad that this story existed to be told.

Painful, yet real, this film was worth the time and heartbreak.

Hard to watch, but had the right feel and tone, so I give it…

3.5 out of 5
