What Rebecca Hall Learned About Life From 'Christine'

In “Christine,” Rebecca Hall stars as journalist Christine Chubbuck, who committed suicide on live television. Hall and director Antonio Campos talked about Chubbuck’s life and portraying depression in the biographical film during the Variety and AARP Movies for Grownups Screening Series.

“It’s ironic. There’s a common misconception about depression, actually,” Hall said, explaining that many think “people with depression don’t laugh or don’t crack jokes or don’t do things that are energetic.”

“For me, the basis of my characterization was that she is active,” she went on. “She’s not passive. She’s actually desperately trying to survive.”
