Jackie Reviews

Aug 22, 2022
Surprisingly this isn’t a puff piece aimed at reinforcing Jackie’s venerated cultural image. It doesn’t shy away from her weaknesses or blemishes. At the same time it doesn’t shortchange her strength and fortitude.

Larraín and Portman remember that Jackie was also a human being, and they render her convincingly in a complex portrayal.

Jackie is a heartbreaking portrait of a womans most lonesome moments. With the accompaniment of Levis score and Larrains direction, this film should be in consideration for not only awards but in the conversation of top 10 films of 2016.

Jackie is a stunning profile of an iconic American woman's personal fortitude at a time of extreme grief. The film is beautifully crafted and Natalie Portman's performance is superb.

Jackie isn't just a convincing and riveting depiction of a 20th century icon; it's also a heart-rending portrait of a grieving woman trying to regain control when the life she knows is suddenly and cruelly taken away.

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.

Very much a project designed solely to exhibit Natalie Portman's acting abilities.

The director took a very minimalist approach resulting in a film that feels deeply intimate and personal...

Larrain shot the film in 16mm, an approach that gives the film an intimacy while also reinforcing Larrain's matter-of-fact approach to telling the stories that unfold.

Larraín's first English-language feature, the battle between privacy and public expectation is at the heart of this staggering movie.
