Jackie isn’t a traditional biopic, but a searing, intimate and sometimes unflattering portrait of the former First Lady. It revolves around the interview she granted the week after her husband’s assassination and features numerous flashbacks, mostly during the events leading up to and immediately following the world-shattering event. We see Jackie go thru many emotions and Natalie Portman carries them all off with astounding insight and skill. This is a condensed character study that’s wrapped in an art film package. The soundtrack is heavy-handed and intrusive, but I think it was director Pablo Larraín‘s intention to make the whole experience less than comfortable. Even though, the portrayal and insights are fascinating. (Criterion Cinema only)
