Trivia

A challenge for costume designer Madeline Fontaine was the dark red, two-piece, bouclé wool dress Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman) wears during her White House tour that most people only associate with the grayed-out 1960s television image. "There does in fact exist some photos of the dress in color so we were able to see the original red. But we had to make two different pieces, one red and one pink, to get just the right shade of gray for the black and white television images," Fontaine explained. See more »

Goofs

About halfway through, Jackie is packing to leave the White House. She's using the 3-inch wide adhesive packing tape that makes a loud sound when you pull it off the spool and is commonplace today. That kind of tape wasn't around much until the 70s or 80s. At first it was just used commercially. Before that, large boxes were sealed with tape that was embedded with fibers and had to be wet with water in order to make it sticky. See more »

Disappointed
21 January 2017 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

As the film is titled 'Jackie' you expect to learn more about her through the film, it should have been called 'JFK's widow one week following his assassination'. This is a woman who was powerful and had a background, a life, buried two babies. All we get from this film is a portrayal of a grieving, often selfish and self absorbed woman who smokes and drinks too much. Who wouldn't fall to that after something as traumatic? The film is flat and bland, it gives us no indication of the type of woman she was, her role in white house (aside from her expensive renovations and insistence on a huge funeral for her husband) We see nothing of her personal achievements. Natalie Portman and the excellent cast's acting skills are the only interesting thing to watch. Disappointing and does 'Jackie O' no justice at all.
