This daring portrait of one of America most famous females is an extraordinary English language directorial debut from Chilean director Pablo Larrin (No, The Club).
Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman) fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband’s historic legacy.
Inarguably, Jackie is a stunning accomplishment with an astonishing performance from Portman combined with unique and uncompromising directorial vision.
????? Its a singular vision from an uncompromising director that happens to be about one of the most famous women in American history. Jackie is not Oscar bait its great cinema.
