    Sundance Report: Inside Rebecca Hall's Tragic Performance as a Suicidal Reporter in 'Christine'

    Rebecca Hall so thoroughly inhabits the role of late Florida newscaster Christine Chubbuck in the movie Christine that, when she spoke with Yahoo Movies about the Sundance Film Festival drama on Sunday, the sound of her natural British accent qualified as a genuine shock. Hall delivers a bold, transformed performance in director Antonio Campos’ intense and ultimately tragic second feature, offering up a sympathetic portrait of a very enigmatic (and unknowable) figure. In a strangely forgotten chapter in American media history, Chubbuck, a 29-year-old reporter working for a small TV station in Florida in 1974, committed suicide on camera.
