Consensus: Rising on the strength of Rebecca Hall's gripping performance, Christine offers an empathetic look at its subject's public career and painful private life.

Rebecca Hall gives one of the great performances of the year as the title character in Christine, an intense, stomach-churning, unblinking drama.

A gripping, often agonizing character study with a tour de force performance by Rebecca Hall.

It's a haunting reflection on the hopefulness of feminism for the 1970s working woman, which is also uncomfortably effective. And while Christine's death is a part of the conclusion of the narrative, it doesn't define it.

Something of a tour de force for star Rebecca Hall who, in keeping with the film's approach, does so much while seeming to do so little.

"Christine" is based on true events, and I suspect it's all the more powerful if you don't know what happens at the end. I did, but the film still gripped me.

You'll need a shield to help deflect all the irony director Antonio Campos and screenwriter Craig Shilowich throw before the camera.

Rich in dramatic detail and psychological insight, the film approaches its protagonist with genuine concern.

Rebecca Hall's Christine is not someone you would rush up to hug. Smart and driven, she is also abrasive, pushy and socially inept - qualities that [she] embodies in her performance with immense technical skill and heartbreaking empathy.

With great writing, acting and direction comes superior entertainment. Solid movie making with insight, sensitivity and drama.

Christine = Network minus Broadcast News divided by Nightcrawler. Rebecca Hall has never been better.

A really interesting and tragic portrait of a deeply troubled woman.
