19 July 2003 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I admit I was engrossed the first time, especially with the casting of Joanne Whalley in the lead but regretfully having caught parts on a re-run, I was dismayed. Would Jacqueline really be sitting there, reminiscing about what it meant to be a Kennedy? No: like anyone in the public eye, you don't stop to think, 'My gosh, I'm a former First Lady.' A woman who did so much was obviously someone who got on with life.

The mini-series does deserve some marks for taking us, Forrest Gump-style, through recent American history, and those old enough—not to mention some history buffs—might like to look at these years through rose-coloured glasses. Sentimentality probably saved this just-below-average mini-series, and gave the studio enough impetus to release it on DVD.

Overall, Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis has a very implausible script based on public (and even then, common) knowledge, lacking any true depth or attempts at it, though well-acted.
