Not to be confused with the Stephen King movie of the same name from the 80s, this true story took place in the 70s. Rebecca Hall plays the title character, a Florida news reporter who killed herself live on TV. Her performance is subtle, yet rich and deep…it’s also the best thing about the film. While she struggles to stand out at her station, she  also deals with personal issues that deepen her despair. The actors all do a good job, but many of the scenes play out too long and too slowly, which weakens the movie’s momentum. As a result, this is more a dark character study instead of the powerful drama it could have been. It’s fun to see the period television technology. (Criterion Cinemas only)
