Goofs

In a scene in Dallas, where Kennedy's limousine is rushing to the hospital immediately after the shooting, the sky overhead is cloudy and overcast. On November 22, 1963, the skies over Dallas were clear and sunny. (The overcast sky in this scene may be a symbolic choice by the director. Other scenes in the film that take place in Dallas on this same day show the skies as sunny and bright.) 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 ...

Both Portman and Jackie Beautiful in Subtlety
18 October 2016 | by salker12See all my reviews

I saw this movie at TIFF and haven't been able to get it off my mind since. Natalie Portman is brilliant in her portrayal of someone who is both uniquely strong-minded and painfully insecure. The portrayal of this type of personality at a time (the 2-3 days following JFK's death) where personal and national perception was everything is unlike anything I have seen in film.

Between script, art direction and cinematography, this movie is equally brilliant in its ability to say everything without saying anything. I can't recommend this movie enough. I don't doubt that we will be talking about it come Oscar season.
