Goofs

After the scene when Jackie and Bobby talk on Air Force One, they exit the plane and in 2 following shots leading to the rear boarding door the airplane windows are illuminated bright white resembling sunlight. In the shots before as Bobby greets Jackie on board, the windows are properly "blacked out" to mimic the actual time of day and lighting conditions at Dulles airport. In actual fact and in in the stock footage shown directly outside the aircraft, it is pitch dark outside with only minimum artificial lighting provided on the tarmac which could not illuminate the outside of the windows in such a way.

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 ...

Surprisingly boring and cold
10 January 2017 | by Susanna72See all my reviews

We went to the theater expecting interesting but sad biopic of an enigmatic woman. Well... my husband and at least a couple of other men in the theater fell asleep, at least when the noisy and creepy score did not keep them awake. It is difficult to tell what explains the discrepancy of the overall positive reviews and our clearly disappointing experience. We felt that the reason why the story was told was not clear to the writers and director. It is difficult to understand how the movie was so boring when everything you read about the Kennedys is interesting. Natalie Portman really tried to be convincing but the acting was forced and you could smell the hours of training. The accent of Jackie Kennedy was really weird even though it tried to resemble the original way of her talking. I overheard one couple discussing when we walked back to the parking lot:" It was rather static. - Yes, and psychotic." I am not sure if they understood the meaning of the words but weirdly it made sense. Overall the photography and costumes were beautiful and all other actors were convincing. In conclusion, the lack of connection with the viewers was evident despite the overall high quality.
