"Moonlight takes the pain of growing up and turns it into hardened scars and private caresses. This film is, without a doubt, the reason we go to the movies: to understand, to come closer, to ache, hopefully with another." - Time Out.
"Moonlight is a film that is both lyrical and deeply grounded in its character work, a balancing act that's breathtaking to behold." - RogerEbert.com.
"Glows like its title." - Hollywood Reporter.
110 mins., Unrated.
Rebecca Hall stars in director Antonio Campos' third feature film, CHRISTINE, the story of a woman who finds herself caught in the crosshairs of a spiraling personal life and career crisis. Christine, always the smartest person in the room at her local Sarasota, Florida news station, feels like she is destined for bigger things and is relentless in her pursuit of an on-air position in a larger market. As an aspiring newswoman with an eye for nuance and an interest in social justice, she finds herself constantly butting heads with her boss (Tracy Letts ), who pushes for juicier stories that will drive up ratings. 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, Campos' intimate and sensitive portrait of a woman on the brink is grounded by Hall's impeccable and transformative performance as Christine.
"A gripping, often agonizing character study with a tour de force performance by Rebecca Hall." - Newsday.
"Hall makes it impossible to look away from this portrait of a woman brought to the heartbreaking conclusion that she's beyond hope." - Hollywood Reporter.
"Striding through this, and commanding almost every scene, is Rebecca Hall, who earns our sympathy, as the best actors do, by steeling herself not to plead for it." - New Yorker.
