Chilean helmer Pablo Larraín makes an extraordinary English-lingo debut with this daring, many-leveled portrait of history's favorite First Lady.

Variety

Nominated for 3 Academy Awards including Best Actress.

Natalie Portman gives a flawless performance as the beloved first lady Jackie Kennedy in Pablo Larrain’s (No, The Club) alluring and unique portrait of the icon.

Structured around Theodore H White’s Life magazine interview at Hyannis Port a mere week after the assassination of her husband John F Kennedy, Jackie unfolds in a mosaic-like manner, moving back and forth between the tragic day in Dallas, the arranging of the president’s funeral, and her earlier time in the White House – swirling around these events in a dizzying and utterly absorbing way. It’s a bold approach, which coupled with a jarring score by Under the Skin composer Mica Levi, make it completely unlike any biopic before it. Throw in Portman’s astonishing performance of this wonderfully complex character, and you’ve got yourself an absolutely great piece of cinema.
