The Kennedys have long captured the admiration, curiosity and imagination of the American public. Now we have Jackie. Fox Searchlight released a teaser today, and I’m officially teased.
Any window into one of the most impossible and terrible moments in American History is fascinating. Natalie Portman has a lot to live up to.
Here’s Fox Searchlight‘s description of the film:
Jackie is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see 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.
Jackie stars Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, John Hurt and others.
Jackie premieres December, 2016.
