Jackie is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that they created and loved so well.
“Chilean director Larraín’s status as the most daring and prodigious political filmmaker of his generation remains undimmed.” — Guy Lodge, Variety
“There’s a mesmeric intensity to Jackie that’s unlike any biopic of its kind, marked by a deliberate effort to narrow the scscope to one woman’s actions and reactions over the course of a few fraught days.” — Scott Tobias, NPR
