Quotes

[first lines]
The Journalist: Mrs. Kennedy? They told me to come up. And I'm so sorry for your loss.
Jackie Kennedy: Have you read what they've been writing? Krock and Merriman and all the rest?
The Journalist: Yes, I have.
Jackie Kennedy: 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.
The Journalist: And how would you like him remembered, Mrs. Kennedy?
Jackie Kennedy: [stammering] I...

A simple historical film with great acting by Natalie Portman
28 January 2017 | by zohal1999See all my reviews

As someone who loves history, I thoroughly enjoyed Jackie. For the most part, the facts were historically accurate as far as I am aware. I also really liked the score, I thought it was very refreshing and simply different. The film was slow-paced but I find that's to be expected with historical films. I liked that the cinematography was simple to give a real sense of the era, and the costume design was great. I also liked the ending.

Essentially this is a film where I liked everything, but didn't love much. The only things that I absolutely loved was Natalie Portman's acting as Jackie Kennedy. She really exuded her character and became Jackie Kennedy. it was great! The other thing I loved was John Hurt as the priest which was a lovely surprise.

Overall, this was a simple film but it wasn't daring. It didn't risk take like other films would and therefore in that regard may be a bore for some.
