Gaining stunning reviews at the 2016 Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, Jackie is an intimate and quietly harrowing study of the week following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, as seen through the eyes of his widow. Natalie Portman delivers a performance of poise and power as Jacqueline Kennedy, fighting to hold onto her dignity amid the horror of losing her husband and the subsequent turmoil at the White House.
Seamlessly making his English-language debut, director Pablo Larraín (No) burrows deep into Jackie’s psyche, showing a woman teetering on the brink.
Jackie, dir. Pablo Larraín, USA/Chile/France 2016, 100 mins.
