Natalie Portman gives a virtuoso performance as Jackie, capturing her breathy feminine tones and the fashion-plate public image that hides inner devastation, hinting at a contained breakdown in the privacy of her own empty bedroom.

This film paints a complex picture of a woman who lost her tether to the world and gained her power back by creating a legend.

An intoxicating and quietly horrific look at one of the most public tragedies of the 20th century, that overcomes the flaws in the screenplay due to strong performances and direction.

As we dip in and out of the life of Jackie Onassis, Larraín maintains a fierce sense of focus. This is not Jackie's biography. It is a portrait of her grief.

The film crystallises Jackie's dignity and pathos, and, also crucially, the sheer brutality of a way of life being completely wrenched from someone in a matter of hours.

It's a performance that doesn't quite transcend. I never felt like I was watching Portman become Kennedy, but more of Portman just playing Kennedy, but it is still stirring in its own right.

Jackie looks at the assassination and aftermath through the widow's eyes, which is a haunting examination of the intersection of loss and legacy that is led by a powerful performance by Natalie Portman.

Natalie Portman's performance carries the film entirely.

The lion's share of praise that will be heaped upon Jackie will largely fall at the foot of Portman, and rightfully so, but there's still a lot to love beyond the soulful performance at the centre of the film.

Portman's vivid portrayal is the film's greatest strength, coasting through woebegone New England accents and the script's on-the-nose airing of themes in the final act.
