Trivia

Even though this movie focused on the funeral of John F. Kennedy, it was interesting that it did not dramatize John F. Kennedy, Jr. saluting his father's coffin as it passed the family. The real-life event, and famous moment, was captured on video and in photographs. It has been incorporated and dramatized over the years in numerous productions that showed Kennedy's funeral.

Goofs

The exterior location shots in Washington, DC were generally in the historically correct location, but made no attempt to recreate those landmarks accurately in period. For example, the funeral cortege passes the Riggs Bank building across from the Department of the Treasury, but the building signage is for SunTrust (the bank that currently occupies this space and didn't exist until 1985). As Jackie is leaving the White House and passes a department store removing her iconic fashions from the windows, the building is what was the Garfinkels Department Store in 1963, but the signage is for that of The Hamilton restaurant, which now occupies the spot. Similarly, no attempt is made to "retro" or disguise the current (2017) signage and identities of the any of the buildings the funeral cortege passes in downtown Washington. See more »

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 ...

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.
