I'm an hour into this movie and it is so boring! I will not waste anymore time!

Well acted indeed and an interesting story to boot, yet what a dud of a movie!

After watching two great films in a row (Sing Street and Dark horse, which doesn't seem to happen for me anymore), I excitedly prepared to make it a trifecta only to be disappointed.

Rebecca Hall does a fantastic job of bringing the complex character of Christine to life. Yet, something is missing. Yes, that is part of the mystery of what led Christine to her desperate act. Those around her know she's distant and able to be caustic but they don't expect the end result.

Her "roommate" mentions "what happened in Boston" and we are led to understand that Christine had a breakdown while there but there was just not enough for me to stick with caring about Christine and the parade of disappointments in her life.

I did enjoy experiencing the behind-the-scenes TV-station politics and arbitrary decision-making for the stories that make it to the news.
