FIVE STARS – “Natalie Portman triumphs.” Time Out
FIVE STARS – “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.” The Guardian
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 in Jackie. From acclaimed director Pablo Larraín, this beautiful, original and unflinching film goes beyond conventional biopic to galvanise the myth of an American icon. Ensuring her a place amongst the Best Actress contenders this awards season, Natalie Portman delivers a career best as Jackie – poised and steely in the public sphere, vulnerable and overcome with emotion in private and a commanding presence throughout.
