Kate Plays Christine2016

  • 3.6
A gripping nonfiction thriller, Robert Greene's KATE PLAYS CHRISTINE follows actress Kate Lyn Sheil as she prepares for her next role: playing Christine Chubbuck, a Florida newscaster who committed a shocking act on live television in 1974. As Kate investigates Chubbuck's story (long rumored to be the inspiration for the classic Hollywood film NETWORK), uncovering new clues and information, she becomes increasingly obsessed with her subject. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, KATE PLAYS CHRISTINE is a cinematic mystery that forces us to question everything we see and everything we're led to believe.

a great story line and a very interesting actress. The film bogs down, becoming repetitive and flat. it could have been just as effective at half the length. Still, it is worth watching to try and get a sense of the era of the mid-seventies.
