Win tickets to see Oscar winner Natalie Portman shine in her career-best performance as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
Set in the days after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Jackie follows First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy as she fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children and define her husband’s legacy.
Boldly re-imagining events, acclaimed director Pablo Larraín moves back and forth in time between the immediate aftermath of the assassination, dreamlike flashes of Jackie’s happiest moments with her husband, her famous televised tour of the White House renovations as First Lady, and her most intimate moments alone, with her family and during confession as she struggles to come to terms with her loss.
Larraín’s unique approach to filmmaking is accompanied by a remarkable music score by Mica Levi (Under the Skin), while at the centre of it all, ensuring her a place amongst the Best Actress contenders this awards season, Natalie Portman delivers a career best as Jackie – poised and steely in the public sphere, vulnerable and overcome with emotion in private and a commanding presence throughout.
Like nothing you’ve seen before, this beautiful, original and unflinching film goes beyond conventional biopic to galvanise the myth of an American icon.
Starring Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, John Hurt, Billy Crudup and Peter Sarsgaard, Jackie is in cinemas Thursday 12 January. For more information, visit jackiemovie.com.au.
