‘Jackie’

jackie-posterA stunning central performance from Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Thor) is the emotional core of this raw portrait of Jackie Kennedy in the immediate aftermath of her husband’s assassination.

Elegant, intelligent, graceful which eschews tradition and expectation – a description of both Jackie herself as well as director Pablo Larrain’s (No, Neruda) semi-documentary. This is no lush Hollywood biopic – instead we get a stripped down telling of the human side of an event that changed history.
