Set in the days immediately following President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, it follows Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy as she deals with the aftermath of the tragedy. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, this presents a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband's legacy and the world of 'Camelot' that they created and loved so well.
Flashing back to her time at the White House as well as the shell-shocked time after the assassination, Jackie promises a real look at a complicated woman.
Portman has been winning plenty of praise for her performance, which has been described as nuanced and complicated, even in a moment of heightened emotion.
With Noah Oppenheim (Allegiant) on script duty, Jackie also features Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead), Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha), John Carroll Lynch (Shutter Island), Richard E. Grant (Dom Hemingway) and Beth Grant (No Country for Old Men).
Jackie is out in cinemas now.
