JACKIE is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). JACKIE places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband's assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband's legacy and the world of “Camelot” that they created and loved so well.
- " [Portman is] at her best here in the moments when Jackie is quiet, when the grief, anger and doubt are in her face more than in her words. " – Linda Holmes
- " Jackie is a film about the Kennedy legacy but it's also a part of it. It's as beautifully and evidently staged as the tour the First Lady herself gave on primetime television. " – Andrew Benjamin
- " [A] visually-stunning and emotionally-moving film… [but] The people of color in this film were used as background and not one had a speaking role. " – Stephanie Abraham
