    @Shingwauk: that was Jackie Kennedy's actual accent. Comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=espe9jaGBv0 2 years 9 months ago

    Framed around a frank interview with President Kennedy's widow, Jackie is a biopic that deals almost exclusively with her reaction to JFK's assassination, and paints the portrait of a woman who both loves history and is aware she is living it, securing, in what some would say is artificial fashion, a grand legacy for her husband despite his aborted term in the Oval Office. Jackie Kennedy essentially throws herself onto the sword of history and makes her grief and suffering as grandiose and epic as the death of a President (a word in this case couched in a sense of Royalty) deserves. Director Pablo Larraín, no stranger to the political stories (I loved his No), mixes the larger than life (as this is an experience on a scale we cannot ever know) with the nitty-gritty of funeral arrangements, while at the same time underscoring the woman's trauma, the score a kind of minimalist tinnitus that both smothers and focuses Jackie. Natalie Portman's performance is, of course, impeccable. 2 years 9 months ago
