September 19, 2017
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.
December 15, 2016
Together [director Larrain and star Portman] trap the character on film, like a rose frozen in a block of ice.

It is a fever dream of a movie, tracking its subject as she tries to maintain control, maintain her composure, her sanity.
December 15, 2016
Larrain's gorgeously grim and austere vision bolsters a bravura performance from Natalie Portman. She inhabits Jackie as a woman who has been shaken to her core with grief.
December 14, 2016
"Jackie" is mesmerizing; a familiar story told from an entirely different angle.

To watch Portman's every move is to not only watch history being recreated, but to also witness history being made. No one will ever be able to touch this role again. Or, at least, no one should.
