The assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 was a moment that defined a generation. That this handsome, charismatic leader with a beautiful wife and two young children could have his life ended so brutally, defied comprehension.
With JACKIE, director Pablo Larraín retells this story solely through the eyes of Jacqueline Kennedy, casting Natalie Portman in the lead role. Jackie was as much a public figure as her husband, an outwardly poised partner who was placed under great scrutiny, yet played her role with consummate grace. Structuring his film around Theodore H. White’s LIFE magazine interview with the First Lady, that took place a mere week after the assassination of her beloved husband, Larraín takes us on a journey with the First Lady as she recounts the immediate aftermath of her husband; her return to the White House, arrangements for the President’s funeral, and her time spent accompanying her husband’s coffin to Arlington Cemetery.
These sequences complete a moving portrait of a grieving woman — a widow and mother struggling with overwhelming tragedy and attention.
