Jackie | Ratings & Reviews

"Hours after John F. Kennedy’s death, Jackie Kennedy watched President Lyndon B. Johnson get sworn in while her husband’s blood was still fresh on her clothes. Days after her husband’s death she organised an elaborate public funeral procession and gave an exclusive interview to LIFE Magazine, both of which elevated her husband’s legacy to mythical proportions."

"Eschewing standard biopic form at every turn, this brilliantly constructed, diamond-hard character study observes the exhausted, conflicted Jackie..."

VarietyVariety

"The film's lasting impact is dazzlingly intellectual: Just as JFK himself turned politics into image-making, his wife continued his work when no one else could."

Time OutTime Out

"In some roles, Ms. Portman stiffens up and never seems to get out of her head; in "Jackie" this works as a character trait."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"It’s a singular vision from an uncompromising director that happens to be about one of the most famous women in American history. Jackie is not Oscar bait – it’s great cinema."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Jackie is subjective and impressionistic, but also disciplined and extremely well thought-through."

StuffStuff

"A potent cinematic provocation. Powered by a transfixing Portman as Jackie, Larrain's film - one of the year's best - is appropriately hard to pin down and impossible to forget."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Jackie ebbs and flows, rough in the most human way possible."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Larraín told his producers he wouldn't do "Jackie" unless Natalie Portman agreed to take on the role, and her superb performance, utterly convincing without being anything like an impersonation, vindicates his determination."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Extraordinary in its piercing intimacy and lacerating in its sorrow, Jackie is a remarkably raw portrait of an iconic American first lady..."
