Christine - Movie Synopsis & Plot
CHRISTINE is the story of a woman who finds herself caught in the crosshairs of a spiraling personal life and career crisis, starring Rebecca Hall and marking director Antonio Campos' third feature film.
Relentlessly motivated to succeed as an on-air news reporter in 1974, Christine is always the smartest person in the room at her station in Sarasota, Florida. Being an aspiring newswoman, however, comes with even greater challenges for Christine as a drive for ratings has begun to seep into the culture and made the station manager’s (Tracy Letts) choices firmly at odds with her hard-hitting style of reporting. 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.
