Jackie is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman), set in the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Overwhelmed by grief and trauma, Jackie struggles to orchestrate a memorable funeral (taking Lincoln’s as her model), console her young children, and attempt to preserve and elevate her husband’s legacy in history. The narrative is structured around an interview Jackie gives a week later to a journalist (Billy Crudup) summoned to Hyannis Port to publicize her version of events, flashbacks to the television tour she conducted through the White House earlier in the presidency (revealing her nerves and insecurity), and nightmarish flashbacks to the assassination itself. Academy Award -winning actress Portman (Black Swan)gives an unforgettable performance in this moving psychological profile. Also starring Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt, Greta Gerwig and Richard E. Grant. Directed by Pablo Larraín(Neruda, No)
