Director: Pablo Larraín
Acclaimed Chilean director Pablo Larraín focuses on Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman), the 34-year-old First Lady who was sitting next to President Kennedy when he was assassinated.
Elegant, stylish, and inscrutable, she instantly became a global icon, one of the most famous women in the world. After President Kennedy is assassinated, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband’s historic legacy. On November 22, 1963, while on a campaign trip to Dallas, John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Jackie’s world – including her faith – is completely shattered. Traumatized and reeling with grief, over the course of the next week she must confront the unimaginable: consoling their two young children, vacating the home she painstakingly restored, and planning her husband’s funeral. Jackie quickly realizes that the next seven days will determine how history will define her husband’s legacy – and how she herself will be remembered.
