Christine (2016)

Based on true events. In 1974, female TV news reporter, Christine Chubbuck, aims for high standards in life and love. With ratings in the cellar, the station manager issues a mandate to deliver juicier and more exploitative stories, a story firmly at odds with Christine’s serious brand of issue-based journalism. To accomplish her goals, she must overcome her self-doubt and give the people what they want. The film won raves at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and features Rebecca Hall in a tour-de-force performance.
