Jackie

Biography Drama


 

When US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated the First Lady struggled with her loss and her role while preparing for his funeral.

"Jackie" is an intimate portrait of grief delivered with an emotional intensity rarely seen in a biopic. We are privy to a penetrating representation of the aftermath of tragedy, a wracking and raw response. The worst days are the earliest ones and the focus is tightly held on that period by employing clever time-lapses. Watching the widow confront her situation is as harrowing as it is mesmerising. O' Jackie.
