I want them to see what they have done to Jack
Academy Award-winner Natalie Portman is Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in this dramatic portrait of the First Lady, following her immediately after the assassination of JFK.
After President Kennedy is assassinated, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children and define her husband’s legacy. From acclaimed director Pablo Larraín, this beautiful, original and unflinching film goes beyond conventional biopic to galvanise the myth of an American icon.
Jackie, directed by Pablo Larraín, is a 2017 Oscar nominee for Actress in a Leading Role. Natalie Portman landed the nod for her portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy in the movie. The film also received 2 other nominations including Costume Design and Music (Original Score).
“A singular vision from an uncompromising director. Portman is altogether astonishing as one of the most famous women in American history. Jackie is great cinema.” 5/5 stars. The Guardian.
“Portman is excellent and the narrative daring.” NZ HERALD ****
