Trivia

Cinematographer Stéphane Fontaine said of filming this movie: "Pablo and I watched loads of archival footage shot in the 60s. We wanted to match those textures, but at the same time, we did not want the movie to look too gritty or rough. It needed to be very elegant, reflective of Jackie. My long time Colorist Isabelle Julien did a great job matching our shots with the archives we used for the movie. We were lucky to shoot most of the movie in a studio, where the controlled environment helped us achieve such a refined look." See more »

Goofs

In the final scene where JFK (Caspar Phillipson) and Jackie (Natalie Portman) are dancing at a White House formal ball, Bobby Kennedy (Peter Sarsgaard) tries to cut in on his brother, the President. Peter Sarsgaard (5'11") is clearly taller than Caspar Phillpson (5' 8 1/2"). In real life, President Kennedy (6'0") was taller than Bobby Kennedy (5' 9"), as is evident in many photographs of them together. The 2 1/2 inch height differential between Sarsgaard and Phillipson is almost exactly the opposite of the 3 inch height differential between JFK and RFK, the historic figures they are portraying.

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...
Jackie Kennedy: You understand that I will be editing this conversation just in case I don't say exactly what I...

Funeral arrangements story.
19 February 2017 | by figarologwatchSee all my reviews

This movie is overrated. The problem of this film it focuses only on a short period of Jacqueline's life - JFK assassination and funeral arrangements. The film is lacking plot and really does not show anything attractive for audience. It show Jackie as smoking and drinking person, who focuses on funeral arrangements to keep the memory of JFK. That's all.
