That has hard to watch. And I knew it was coming. But it was a well-crafted story, and with the time we've had to contextualize the struggle of women in that time and industry, it's even more potent.

Every detail of that 70s decor and clothing, amber mugs, plastic ashtrays, polyester, etc was perfectly hideous!

I typically struggle with biopics and true stories because the creative liberties required to make a film always nag at me. This movie was incredibly well done, though. Sensitively and carefully told, without caricatures or emotional manipulation. Excellent performances all around. 5 stars

Dialog was not authentic for the period, and cinematography is not great, so it doesn't feel like 1974 at all. Story was not well directed as a drama. Still, very much worth watching just for the strong acting.

Excellent performances all around. Very good script. The portrayal was sympathetic, but in the end, uninsightful.

fantastic film. the soundtrack is a little unremarkable (one could easily make the argument it is to a point) but the performances by the cast, obviously rebecca in particular, are incredible. the film handles the subject beautifully. for those who don't know the story behind the film going ...Read more

An intimate telling of a very sad story. The performances were great across the board, especially Rebecca Hall. I'm interested to check out Kate Plays Christine next.

Rebecca Hall's portrayal of Christine Chubbuck was the highlight of this film for me. Both disturbing and intriguing at the same time.
