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 Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). Director Pablo Larraín (Neruda) examines Jackie’s world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that they created and loved so well. Traumatized and reeling with grief, over the course of the next week she must confront the unimaginable: consoling their two young children, vacating the home she painstakingly restored, and planning her husband’s funeral. Jackie quickly realizes that the next seven days will determine how history will define her husband’s legacy– and how she herself will be remembered.
