Rebecca Hall fought her way into our hearts with her compelling performance in 2008’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”  Since then, we’ve admired her craft, as she continues to show her versatility.  With Antonio Campos’ look at the last days of Christine Chubbuck’s life before she commits suicide on-air, Hall is afforded an opportunity to take the forefront of a very competitive Best Actress race.  The Orchard, who is distributing the film, has already stated they will be campaigning for her this year.  Perhaps it’ll all work out for them.
