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.
“There are performances, and then there is what Natalie Portman achieves in Pablo Larraín’s “Jackie.” In what is easily some of the most powerful work of the Oscar winner’s career, “Jackie” finds Portman burrowing into the soul of Jacqueline Kennedy like never before and forcing the viewer to see her subject in a new, more complex light.” – Indiewire
JACKIE is in UK cinemas from 20th January, 2017
