Portman does a tremendous job balancing an accurate impersonation of Mrs. Kennedy's unique voice and mannerisms with a performance that is genuine and fresh.

In her portrayal of former First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman is absolutely superb in Jackie.
November 4, 2017
Director Pablo Larraín's biopic JACKIE is soaked in atmosphere, bleeding emotion, life, death, happiness, sadness and anxiety.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
November 3, 2017
A disturbingly intimate portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy, 'Jackie' is a film that unmasks her in such a tender yet objective manner; you feel like an intruder who is tailing the first lady of America and a widow in her most trying time.

It's one of the must-sees of this award season.

It's easy to recognize some of the shared elements between Jackie and Neruda. But it's still striking to see Larraín tackle such quintessentially American material (and with a largely different crew) and managing to hit the mark so cleanly once again.

Pale and gaunt, Portman not only looks the part - those vintage costumes are perfect for her - she manages to channel the grief and pain powerfully.

I can testify from firsthand experience that Natalie Portman, in what is certain to be an Oscar-nominated performance, gets it very right.
September 15, 2017
Not your typical biopic, Jackie is an extraordinary exploration of a complex woman navigating her loss, her children's grief and a nation through an unprecedented political and personal tragedy. Don't miss it.

Portman's portrayal is nothing less than amazing, perfectly capturing Jacqueline's intense drive, strength, occasional pettiness, and overwhelming grief.
June 30, 2017
It tries not to fall into cheap patriotism and for the most part succeeds, but more than anything is the Portman show. [Full review in Spanish]

Here's how you know the new film Jackie is working: You move from trying to decide just how credible Natalie Portman's impersonation is to thinking about anything and everything except that.
June 13, 2017
For the most part ... Jackie keeps things clear and preserves its subject's sadness in amber.

April 11, 2017
A look at a woman who uses the cameras to transmit the version that suits her. Part of Jackie's success lies in not knowing when we are seeing the woman or her creation. [Full review in Spanish]
March 22, 2017
A movie that is as brilliant as it is frustrating.

March 15, 2017
Larraín is an artist, and his skills show throughout, both in his ability to meld so many different sequences into a narrative whole and in how effectively he uses Portman to portray one of the world's most memorable figures.

"Jackie" may not be the highest point in the career of the Chilean filmmaker, but there's enough material on the film to avoid going unnoticed. [Full review in Spanish]
March 13, 2017
While the movie may not sit well with those looking for perhaps a more conventional Hollywood approach to biopics, it is worth seeing for Ms. Portman's outstanding performance alone.

The emotions are muted, suggested in gestures and details, as is the drama. Jackie doesn't deliver the catharsis you might expect from the subject matter. It's more interested in the nuances of character...
