Trivia

The film's production designer Jean Rabasse and his team thoroughly researched not only old footage but also the history of her famous televised White House Tour [See: A Tour of the White House (1962)] so that the sets could exactly replicate what audiences saw. "I had an assistant who spent two months researching the name of every painting to find the height of each. It was amazing, the amount of research we had to do, but it was so important." Rabasse noted. "You had to see the beauty and splendor that Jackie [Jacqueline Kennedy] so wanted to share through her tour." See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, Jackie is looking out her limousine and watches mannequins being set up in what appears to be store display windows with the words "The Hamilton" written on them. The Hamilton is a restaurant and concert venue, which opened in 2011. In the 60s there was a local department store named Garfinkles in that location. See more »

Natalie Portman Astonishing as the Grieving First Lady --
19 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Venice Reports by Alex Immediate reaction to Portman's JACKIE

Alex Deleon {}. Premiere at 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Natalie Portman simply Astonishing as the Grieving First Lady. Viewedon Thursday morning, Venice Day 8, at the massive Aerdrome hangar-like Sala Biennale. Incredible Natalie Portman as Newly widowed wife of JFK is a shoo-in for Best Actress Oscar in Feb. 2017. She had the accent (fey debuttantish speech style during White House tour) absolutely down pat to the point where it was eerie -- but also the supreme dignity and composure after the shooting. All nails hit squarely on the head by Chilean director Pablo Larrain backed up by American Producer Daran Aronofsky. This incredible film gave me the shivers at several points -- Shivers of historical recognition reviving my own reactions to the events at the time. Portman is just unbelievable!! -- She got so deep into Jackie's skin that physical resemblance or lack of it was totally by-passed and rendered irrelevant. She captured the Soul! ~~ After this she stands alone as the Next Big Hollywood Diva. All backup roles also perfect, notably Billy Crudupp as the respectful but in-digging reporter whose interview with Jackie frames the story. A clever scenario device that provides a Kane-ish touch. Ends with the feeling that Ms. Kennedy will do anything to preserve the White House as Camelot legend. This picture preserves the Jacqueline Bouvier-Kennedy legend in spades.

PS: Noah Oppenheim was awarded a Best Scenario Silver Lion on Venice awards night.
