Now Showing In Budapest: 'Jackie'
"Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband's historic legacy."


Movie type: Drama - This is not a conventional biopic of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy but a film focused on her during the aftermath of President Kennedy's assassination--as such, this is a major dramatic showcase for star Natalie Portman, with recognizable co-stars such as Peter Sarsgaard and Greta Gerwig having secondary roles. Some language, alcohol, drugs, and bloody violence on top of the mature subject matter make the film not for kids.

Director: Pablo Larraín

Script: Noah Oppenheim

Starring: Jacqueline Kennedy - Natalie Portman, Robert Kennedy - Peter Sarsgaard, Nancy Tuckerman - Greta Gerwig

Length: 1 hr. 39 min.

Rated: R

Reviews:

Roger Ebert: “Above Average - There are two movies in "Jackie," Pablo Larrain's film about Jackie Kennedy (Natalie Portman) immediately before, during and after the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. One of these movies is just OK. The other is exceptional. The first one keeps undermining the second.”

USA Today: “Very Good - The iconic first lady is given emotional complexity and rich understanding through a stirring and ambitious performance by Natalie Portman in director Pablo Larrain's powerful drama... It's less a biopic than an experimental character study — an effective one...”

NY Post: “Average - At its best, as when Jackie informs the children that Daddy has gone to heaven, the film's tone is more affecting in its subtlety, and these are some poignant, graceful scenes. But for the most part, Jackie is an act of emotional anachronism.”

Rolling Stone: “Very Good - Powered by a transfixing Portman, Larrain's film one of the year's best is appropriately hard to pin down and impossible to forget. ...a spellbinding look at one of the planet's most famous women through the prism of what happens right after her husband is assassinated...”
