    Throughout the history of cinema, there have been countless biopics offamous figures that deify their subjects and disregard faults in fearof tainting the idol they have so perfectly sculpted. In Jackie,however, Pablo Larrain subverts genre expectations in favor of ahaunting psychological portrait of a woman caught in a terrifying pieceof history. Famous images of Jacqueline Kennedy in her pink Chanel suithave lingered in the public’s collective memory for years, but here,Larrain allows viewers to experience the week following JFK’sassassination from the perspective of the woman who held his dying bodyin her arms. It’s shot in an episodic, frantic format that replicatesthe psychological turmoil of post-traumatic stress as the line betweenpast and present blurs. One ghostly scene in particular – soundtrackedby Mica Levi’s eerie score – follows Jackie as she wanders the WhiteHouse in isolation, exploring various rooms and eventually fallingasleep alone as a widow for the first time. The film’s centralperformance by Natalie Portman will no doubt gain great attention forits dedication to every last nuance of Jackie Kennedy’s mannerisms andvoice, but the real success rests in Portman’s relentless and layeredconveyance of emotion throughout the film. She does not allow theiconic figure to become a one-dimensional reflection of the public’smemory, but allows viewers to witness the conflicted feelings ofnostalgia, grief, isolation, and tenacity that Kennedy experienced. Thefilm successful solidifies the lingering of Kennedy’s melancholic faceas a fleeting vision set across the 60s horizon, luminous and bruisedat once, but enduring through history.

    Venice Reports by Alex Immediate reaction to Portman’s JACKIE

    Alex Deleon {}. Premiere at 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Natalie Portmansimply Astonishing as the Grieving First Lady. Viewedon Thursdaymorning, Venice Day 8, at the massive Aerdrome hangar-like SalaBiennale. Incredible Natalie Portman as Newly widowed wife of JFK is ashoo-in for Best Actress Oscar in Feb. 2017. She had the accent (feydebuttantish speech style during White House tour) absolutely down patto the point where it was eerie — but also the supreme dignity andcomposure after the shooting. All nails hit squarely on the head byChilean director Pablo Larrain backed up by American Producer DaranAronofsky. This incredible film gave me the shivers at several points– Shivers of historical recognition reviving my own reactions to theevents at the time. Portman is just unbelievable!! — She got so deepinto Jackie’s skin that physical resemblance or lack of it was totallyby-passed and rendered irrelevant. She captured the Soul! ~~ After thisshe stands alone as the Next Big Hollywood Diva. All backup roles alsoperfect, notably Billy Crudupp as the respectful but in-diggingreporter whose interview with Jackie frames the story. A cleverscenario device that provides a Kane-ish touch. Ends with the feelingthat Ms. Kennedy will do anything to preserve the White House asCamelot legend. This picture preserves the Jacqueline Bouvier-Kennedylegend in spades.

    PS: Noah Oppenheim was awarded a Best Scenario Silver Lion on Veniceawards night.

  3. Art Snob from Rochester, NY USA says:

    I saw this at one of my rare non-balcony screenings at this year’s TIFFwith Chilean director Pablo Larrain (who had another film at thefestival, the Spanish language NERUDA) present and available for apost-screening Q & A.

    First things first. If you thought Helen Mirren as THE QUEEN, MarionCotillard as Edith Piaf, and Meryl Streep as THE IRON LADY gave great,deservedly Oscar-winning performances in biopics, know that NataliePortman as Jackie Kennedy gives a performance here that’s every bit intheir league. This almost makes you wince at the thought of how muchtalent was going underutilized in all those Star Wars and Thor movies,but I’m glad that they made it possible for her to play a role likethis one. Truly out of the park.

    I can’t see this film not picking up multiple nominations. Pablo andthe picture should both be nominated, but they’ll have a tough timetaking home the prizes over Damien Chazelle and LA LA LAND (which Ialso saw and am sure will be a big hit). The cinematography, editing,set design, and ESPECIALLY the makeup are all first-rate and deserving.

    There may be a nomination among the supporting players: Peter Sarsgaardis excellent as the thoroughly-broken Bobby Kennedy, and hisconsideration should benefit from the contrast with his highly-visiblerole as the head baddie in the remake of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (alsoseen at TIFF) which is certainly destined for commercial success. (BTW,he’s just adequate in that role – no match for Eli Wallach in theoriginal.)

    About that caveat: The film leaves the impression that there was anational day of mourning the day of the Kennedy funeral, so I inquiredof Larrain (who speaks only limited English) why the film didn’taddress the controversy about the NFL playing a full schedule on thesame day. It turned out that he didn’t know what the NFL was and had tobe informed by the moderator. I didn’t really catch his reply,something about things having to go on.

    Another quibble: The framing device is an interview Jackie gave toTheodore White a week after the assassination, but White is notidentified and is played by Billy Cruddup, who looks nothing like him.The familiarity Jackie had with him is nowhere to be found.

    Misimpressions aside, this is a must-see for anyone with a taste forgreat acting. Let the aforementioned performances be your guide — thator a desire to see Portman one-up her Oscar turn in BLACK SWAN.

  4. salker12 from United States says:

    I saw this movie at TIFF and haven’t been able to get it off my mindsince. Natalie Portman is brilliant in her portrayal of someone who isboth uniquely strong-minded and painfully insecure. The portrayal ofthis type of personality at a time (the 2-3 days following JFK’s death)where personal and national perception was everything is unlikeanything I have seen in film.

    Between script, art direction and cinematography, this movie is equallybrilliant in its ability to say everything without saying anything. Ican’t recommend this movie enough. I don’t doubt that we will betalking about it come Oscar season.

  5. Dave McClain (dave-mcclain@hotmail.com) from United States says:

    Jacqueline Bouvier. Jackie Kennedy. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. JackieO. Jackie. There are many ways to refer to this singularly iconic woman– and many ways to remember her. That breathy voice. That educated andsophisticated demeanor. Her sense of style… including that pink suit,later tragically stained with the blood of a slain president, husbandand father. And, of course, her extraordinary poise and grace in thewake of President Kennedy’s assassination. Her public image and thesights and sounds that surrounded her are indelible for so manyAmericans – and people all around the world – but how much do we reallyknow about her as a person? How much do we really understand?Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was a very public person, with avery private sensibility, best known for being at the center of one ofthe most traumatic moments in American history. “Jackie” (R, 1:40),directed by Pablo Larrain, written by Noah Oppenheim and starringOscar-winner Natalie Portman as the title character do their best tohelp us peak behind the curtain and learn more about the woman behindthat famous face.

    “Life” Magazine writer Theodore H. White (Billy Crudup) arrives at theKennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts for his appointment tointerview Jackie Kennedy, one of the most famous women in the world.Just one week after her husband’s assassination, Mrs. Kennedy, whoinvited the Pulitzer Prize winner to do this interview, is already veryconcerned that her husband may be forgotten – or misunderstood byhistory. White, who is deferential, but firm and professional, finds awoman who is clearly still grieving her horrible loss, but who is alsovery much in control of herself – and very much in control regardingher husband’s legacy – even to the point of editing White’s notesduring the interview.

    While returning periodically to the scenes of the interview, most ofJackie’s story is told in flashback scenes of her as First Lady –especially on that fateful day in November of 1963 – and the four daysthat followed. We get a sense of who she was as First Lady from a lookat the filming (no, not taping – not in 1962) of Jackie Kennedy’sfamous televised tour of the White House, during which she showed anddiscussed her historic and artistic changes to “The People’s House”, asshe calls it, while she receives help and support from her close aide,Nancy Tuckerman (Greta Gerwig). But most of “Jackie” revolves aroundthe assassination, its immediate aftermath and the funeralpreparations.

    In spite of being traumatized by the shooting, Jackie “keeps ittogether” as well as anyone in those circumstances could, cradling herhusband’s fatally-wounded head in her lap on the way to the hospitaland desperately hoping that he might survive, dutifully standing withthe new First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson (Beth Grant), beside VicePresident Lyndon Johnson (John Carroll Lynch), as he takes the oath ofoffice and becomes President of the United States, and then, aftersitting motionless beside her husband’s casket during the flight backto Washington, D.C., refusing to change her blood-stained suit beforeexiting the plane and being photographed by the press, “so they can seewhat they did to Jack”.

    While caring for her children and making plans for their future, Jackiebecomes intimately involved with the planning of her husband’s funeral.President Johnson and his new administration, including SpecialAssistant Jack Valenti (Max Casella), respectfully defer to Jackie’swishes regarding every detail, even when she changes her mind. She usesthe funeral of Abraham Lincoln as a template for her plans, includinginsisting on an open procession through the streets of Washington, inspite of the well-founded security concerns that are raised.Alternately sharing their grief and having stress-fueled clashes,Jackie and her brother-in-law, Robert F. Kennedy (Peter Sarsgaard) worktogether on these plans, including choosing JFK’s grave site inArlington National Cemetery. As much as we learn about Jackie fromwatching her during those four days in November, we gain even moreinsight into her private thoughts during scenes of a conversation withan elderly priest (John Hurt) at the cemetery.

    “Jackie” is fascinating and compelling, but includes elements whichdamage its overall quality. The script and direction shed a lot oflight on what happened (and might have happened) during the privatemoments of this very public national nightmare, while painting a verypersonal portrait of Jackie Kennedy, but the editing harms the film’spotential effectiveness. The chronology of events, while not verydifficult to follow, simply jumps around too much, and the choices ofwhich bits of archival footage to use and where to use them, distractsfrom and even contradicts the film’s own cinematography. Meanwhile, thescore is overwhelming and unnecessarily melodramatic.

    The primary strength of this film is Portman, who nails JackieKennedy’s voice and mannerisms, while infusing her with a complexcombination of vulnerability, tenacity and grace under pressure. Someof the other casting is shaky. Two of the major players in thishistorical drama, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, and President LyndonJohnson, are played by actors who look virtually nothing like thereal-life men, and make little attempt to act or even sound like them.Fortunately, strong supporting turns by Casella, Hurt, Gerwig andRichard E. Grant (as chairman of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts) pickup the slack. Overall, “Jackie” is a valuable and satisfying additionto the long list of cinematic portrayals of the Kennedy family andtheir tragic, but resilient history. Movie Fans will likely end thisfilm feeling they know and understand more about the Kennedyassassination, its impact on the country and, most importantly, thewoman most affected by it all: Jackie. “B+”

  6. mharah from United States says:

    This film shows a Jackie Kennedy that we did not know. While there isnothing revealed of which we weren’t already aware, albeit in fits andstarts over the years, assembling it all as “Jackie” does is certainlya fresh approach. One must decide if we are watching a dissection or ahit job, for in many ways, it is not flattering. Natalie Portman’sacting chops are well displayed. Her portrayal is certainly not amirror image. She actually looks less like Jackie than many of theactresses who have preceded her. But since many other actors in thefilm only vaguely resemble their actual characters, a look-alike imagewas probably not intended. Her voice suggests Jackie’s very uniquesound and speech pattern, but it is not the same. Again, probably notintended to be. The film’s scenario covers the week following thePresident’s assassination with strategic flashbacks interspersed. It isdifficult to discern whether the actual dialogue can be confirmed, orif it has simply been re-imagined with some degree of hoped-foraccuracy. Director Pablo Larrain is Chilean. Reportedly, he speakslittle English. This isn’t necessarily a handicap, but it certainlycould make for some very unusual choices – Among them: Vice-PresidentLyndon Johnson was surely not the hapless bystander that he isportrayed here; Attorney General Bobby Kennedy did not defer soeloquently to Jackie (we know that from several sources; they didn’teven like each other very much); the Kennedy children couldn’t possiblyhave been so detached from the proceedings. The script may have allowedfor that interpretation, but the director would have needed to secureit. And where were the rest of the Kennedy clan? They barely appear inthe film, and this is not at all like them. Writer Noah Oppenheim’s twoprevious scripts – Allegiant and The Maze Runner – are nothing likeJackie. It had been on the Hollywood Black List (well-regardedscreenplays which can’t seem to get a green-light) as early as 2010.Darren Aronofsky, to direct and/or produce, had been attached early on;he is hardly a mainstream choice. Portman herself had been approachedas early 2012. (Rachel Weisz, the earlier choice, dropped out when sheand Aronofsky split up.) She wouldn’t even commit until knowing whowould direct. Larrain was chosen even though he didn’t like doingbio-pics and had no experience as a women’s director, to say nothingabout never having directed an American film. Aronofsky stayed on asthe producer. The main interiors were shot on a soundstage in Paris.The designers and crew mostly Europeans. In short, Jackie is anon-traditional package — and it comes off that way. It is beautifullydone in exquisite detail. Virtually nothing is out of place. The score,from Mica Levi whose previous film credits are eerie, makes a veryintense statement. And it is relentless. As a bio-pic, Jackie is anoutlying member of the Jacqueline Kennedy canon. As a mainstream film,it is unsettling… even creepy. It will be interesting to see how theKennedy partisans receive it. My guess is.. not well.

  7. trublu215 from United States says:

    Jackie tells the story of former First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, as shestruggles to cope with the assassination of her husband, John F.Kennedy. While many people are concerned with the magic bullet theory,Jackie is concerned with the life of the woman behind the 35thPresident of the United States after she endures having to watch herhusband die in that now infamous car ride in Dallas. There is no roomfor macho-ism here. This film is a singular burst of estrogen on screenas we follow Portman’s Jackie navigate through the days after herhusband’s death. This isn’t a film in which a woman discovers herselfthrough a man. This is a film about a strong woman put in a nearimpossible situation and how she coped with that impossible situationto become exactly what she was known to most of the world as: thestrongest woman alive.

    First off, this film is a brilliant character study. Running at a brisk96 minutes, the film is relentless in showing every facet of Jackie’slife both before and after the assassination. Natalie Portman isastounding as the titular character. She plays Mrs. Kennedy with suchhonesty and tenacity that it is almost impossible to look away. This isa performance for the ages and definitely Portman’s best performancesince her Oscar winning performance in Black Swan. While the filmfeatures an amazing performance from Portman and the rest of the cast,including an impressive turn from Peter Sarsgaard as Robert F. Kennedyalong with Billy Crudup and Greta Gerwig, it fails to captivate theaudience past the phenomenal performances.

    The film, despite being a brisk 96 minutes, doesn’t allow for anythingother than the performances to speak. The cinematography, while verynice and well done, doesn’t really work like it should. It never feelsas grand or as sweeping as it should for such an amazing subjectmatter. It hits the familiar beats of a character study and walks tothe tune of a standard biopic. But no matter how familiar this filmends up feeling, for every standard point to it, there’s anextraordinary performance to off set it.

    Overall, Jackie is a film that was made for heavy hitting actors thatcan give breathtaking performances and our cast doesn’t disappoint evenif the film sometimes does. It hits every familiar beat that the biopicformula has created over the years. While this may sound like anegative, it does fit this film and does wonders for Natalie Portman’ssearing and commanding performance.

  8. redber from Canada says:

    A definitive best picture candidate. I assure you it is definitivelyimpulsive. You’d rather guzzle a glass of wine than your regular movietheatre tap soda.

    The story of Jackie. Starring Natalie Portman. Who would’ve known. Suchimpenitence by the campfire in tranquil. Far and wide. The harkingembody is cinematic expulsion of Bogart-Dean partiality’s. Such as…

    a) the dirty dish (the significance here is in it’s unique faults), itflourishes from skyward visions to low bound frequencies. In essence itis cunning and remains.

    b) the flagon fled-rising: She was the black swan, but now she pondersin red

    c) Kones, 1943.

    Nothing reaches the bounds of it’s being to the nth degree. Jackieswifts and sonars in i- measurable quantification. Richard E. Grantspellbinds the vitality to the hymnal degree.

    Nigh^.

    In the end, what my 3 pointers pontificate is the basis ofunderstanding this movie’s dialogue. You must surge into the verynature of this movie’s community. Once you slightly grasp it, Oh boydoes Jackie ever grab you.

  9. CedenoTheMan from America says:

    Her acting was so bad in this movie. She ended up just being acringeworthy imitation of Jackie Kennedy. Truly the worst performanceof 2016 or maybe of all time. It was like an SNL skit. The movie itselfis very pretentious with a bunch of left winging liberal views. This isjust god awful. This will end Natalie Portman’s career. The hack hasrun in this industry long enough. It’s the worst performance sinceBlack Swan. If this thing gets nominated for an Oscar, I will be trulyoffended and disappointed. I call it a thing because Natalie Portman isno human being. This is truly disrespectful to Jackie and her legacy.What a load of schlock.

    0/10.
