Unseen sides of Jacqueline Kennedy are also revealed in her interactions with her equally shattered brother-in-law who was also the Attorney General of the United States, Robert F. Kennedy - an icon in his own right, who would be assassinated while running for President in 1968. The role is played by Peter Sarsgaard. Like Portman, Sarsgaard faced the gauntlet of trying to capture the essence of a man who is both beyond recognizable and revered. Sarsgaard admitted: "I was initially hesitant to play RFK. I wrestled with it, yet I couldn't get it out of my head. I admired him so much. I was already familiar with some of the moments of his life - and knew how he'd been completely poised in a moment of crisis. I wasn't really sure I could do it and I said as much to Pablo [director Pablo Larraín] when we first talked, but Pablo gave me the confidence to try." See more »

Mrs. Kennedy? They told me to come up. And I'm so sorry for your loss.
Have you read what they've been writing? Krock and Merriman and all the rest?
Yes, I have.
Merriman's such a bitter man. It's been just one week. Already they're treating him like some dusty old artifact to be shelved away. That's no way to be remembered.
And how would you like him remembered, Mrs. Kennedy?
You understand that I will be editing this conversation just in case I don't say exactly ...

The beginning to middle was dreadful, middle to end was incredibly average. I wish I didn't pay to see it as the trailer gave me false hope. Boring as hell and consisted of the first lady walking around the house being sad the whole time. I must admit there were about 3 interesting shots but the only bit that actually grabbed my attention was the very short clip of JFK's head being dismantled. Disappointed because Natalie was amazing in Black Swan and I was hoping for a more interesting take on the story. in conclusion; this is my opinion and I know people have different tastes in films but if you thought this film was amazing you've clearly never seen an above average film in your life.
