Jackie Description

OSCAR® Winner Natalie Portman leads an acclaimed cast in this powerfully stirring drama as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. As she grapples with unimaginable grief and trauma following President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, “Jackie’s” faith and strength lead her to a new life with her children. While she honors her husband’s remarkable legacy, she also leaves her own indelible mark.

Every day is a matter of life and death in a hectic New York City hospital, but for Nurse Jackie that's the easiest part. Between chronic back pain that won't quit, and a personal life on the constant edge of collapse, it's going to take a white lie here, a bent rule there, and a handful of secret strategies to relieve the pain, and stay one step ahead of total disaster.

    Natalie Portman's acting is great and the movie will speak to you.
  • Disappointing

    Natalie Portman's accent is horribly distracting. So there's an uncanny resemblance except for when she opens her mouth. This movie is well-written but it's about grief, grief, grief and little else.

    What was that accent ? Portman sounded like she had a speech impediment. Wait for it on Netflix.

    You will need to Drink Coffee in order to stay awake. Nothing wrong with the performances just a plain good Old-Fashioned boring film. A real disappointment. People my age remember where we were when we lost the much loved President. And, we very much admired his beautiful wife even though her voice could be off putting. I really wanted to at least like this movie! At least wait for it to appear for streaming on one of several streaming services.

    I rented this movie with my parents. My dad walked out saying its just downright awful and its the worst display of acting he's ever seen. He also noted Portman's weird accent with heavy breathing sounded like Gollum from Lord Of The Rings. My mom was hopful it would get better. Unfortunatly, it never did and we shut it off.
  • Really slow

    This movie was really really slow. Rent it if you really want to see it because it's not worth watching a second time.
  • Of course she isn't Jackie, but...

    Natalie Portman DELIVERS!!! Do you understand? This movie might be slow paced for many, but it's a devastatingly honest portrayal of one of Americas most charming, enigmatic and intriguing figures. Jackie Kennedy's look, voice and even mannerisms are so etched upon the American psyche even more than half a century later, that any actress tasked with playing her would be in an unenviable position but Natalie Portman raises the bar. Her portrayal will be looked upon as a masterclass in subtlety and control. Her tears, her movement, her cadence, even the subtlest tensing of muscles in her face are so natural and authentic I was in awe of her performance. It simply begs to be seen. She was robbed at the Oscars and if you watch you'll agree.
  • Solid.

    I'll start with a few complaints; the most major setback of the movie is that the flow is choppy. I felt that it cut from one part to another with no buildup, and made it a little disorienting and at times, hard to follow. The movie didn't flow well as a result of this. It also cut from flashback to Jackie's "present" at seemingly random times, which added to the disorientation. My second and extremely minor complaint is that it contained small historical inaccuracies (I.e. In reality, Jackie never told her kids that JFK died; their nanny did). These complaints aside, the movie was solid overall. Natalie Portman did a fantastic job with her role, and very deserving of her Oscar nomination; while she may not physically look the part, she did a fantastic job portraying Jackie, both the publicity and mystery of America's most elusive First Lady, as well as Jackie's subtle defiant side and gentle, welcoming side. They also did a good job of the pacing of the movie; many people said that the movie was too slow, but I felt that the slow pacing helped build up the sense of panic and drama, which was extremely appropriate when you consider the severity of the assassination of a leader that many people loved, obviously an extremely dramatic event, and it reflects the panic people felt. This also helps the audience to feel the burden that Jackie would have to carry in order to extend his legacy, while keeping herself, her children, and the Kennedy family together, all under the eyes of the public in the little time she had left in the White House. This movie helped perfectly reflect all those concepts through the slow pacing that people complained about. Finally, the imagination of the events that unraveled made me on edge at first, but they put enough in to make it believable, but not so much so that we can't see it happening; it's amazing that we can actually believe that this was exactly how Jackie would react at every turn. Overall it was a great movie; it had its flaws that keeps me from giving it a perfect rating, but it's still an overall excellent movie.

    Great acting, but the film goes nowhere. Utterly boring.
  • Natalie is good, but that's about it

    Apart from Natalie Portman's portrayal as Jackie, there is literally nothing interesting about this movie. I feel like I learned nothing new about Jackie Kennedy. It plays like a dream, jumping through different timelines sometimes without a smooth transition.
