I can testify from firsthand experience that Natalie Portman, in what is certain to be an Oscar-nominated performance, gets it very right.

[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.

Portman is simply brilliant, getting to the essence of Jackie without resorting to a mere impersonation.

The title character never emerges from the iconic shell she inhabits to become a fully fleshed-out individual and the filmmakers are perhaps too reverential to make her seem real.

"Jackie" is a gamble, and Portman makes it pay off.

Together [director Larrain and star Portman] trap the character on film, like a rose frozen in a block of ice.

Jackie has an award worthy performance from Natalie Portman and a truly haunting score but it's a series of well done events that doesn't form a cohesive whole.

The problem is Pablo Larrain chose to portray Jackie as a flat emotionally distant character.

It is a great film in its own right thanks to terrific direction, subtle performances and the best soundtrack of the year so far.

The film is frustratingly obvious and pushes the viewer into a passive role.
