In the wake of JFK’s assassination, his wife – now widow – must fight to rekindle her spirits and preserve her husband’s legacy in this Golden Globe nominated film.
While JFK has always been remembered through the history of the last half a century, what about JBK - Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy?
In an intimate portrait of the President’s widow, Jackie picks up where the scenes of one of the most well-documented assassinations of the 21st century end.
Beginning just days after the life-changing event, we see how Jackie Kennedy (Natalie Portman) is coping with the loss of her husband, in the wake of so many challenges.
The First Lady of the United States must fight back tears to maintain her dignity and poise in front of the entire nation, while also doing her all to preserve her husband’s legacy.
Wading through waves of grief and trauma, Jackie follows Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in her quest to regain her faith, doing everything in her power to maintain her children’s spirits after the loss of their father.
Directed by Pablo Larraín, Jackie sees a host of famous faces appear on screen alongside one another, with Peter Sarsgaard (The Magnificent Seven) as Robert F. Kennedy and Richard E. Grant (The Iron Lady) as William Walton supporting Portman (Jane Got a Gun) in the lead role as Jackie.
