Trivia

Jacqueline Kennedy in real life gave two interviews after her husband's death - one to Life magazine and the other to historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. [Arthur Schlesinger Jr.], who recorded eight hours with Jackie. After that, she would never publicly speak of this period of time again. Some of the interview transcripts, however, were heavily redacted by Jackie herself, leading actress Natalie Portman to wonder what it was that Jackie wanted to keep hidden, and why. That inquiry into her heavy-handed editing habits became an important element in Portman's portrayal. Portman said: "It helped me to look carefully at the gaps in information. What was deleted and why? Did she say too much? Knowing there were gaps also gave me a feeling of freedom that we could imagine those moments that no one has any actual knowledge of from the time."

Goofs

Aboard Air Force One upon landing in Dallas, "Jackie" is looking into a mirror and putting on the pink pillbox hat as she recites a speech in Spanish. In reality, Jackie had already delivered that speech the previous evening in Houston when she and JFK made an appearance at a LULACS (League of United Latin American Citizens) gathering. See more »

Quotes

Bill Walton: People need their history. It gives them strength. They need to know that real men actually lived here. Not ghosts, and storybook legends- People who faced adversity and overcame it.

Natalie Portman Astonishing as the Grieving First Lady --
19 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Venice Reports by Alex Immediate reaction to Portman's JACKIE

Alex Deleon {}. Premiere at 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Natalie Portman simply Astonishing as the Grieving First Lady. Viewedon Thursday morning, Venice Day 8, at the massive Aerdrome hangar-like Sala Biennale. Incredible Natalie Portman as Newly widowed wife of JFK is a shoo-in for Best Actress Oscar in Feb. 2017. She had the accent (fey debuttantish speech style during White House tour) absolutely down pat to the point where it was eerie -- but also the supreme dignity and composure after the shooting. All nails hit squarely on the head by Chilean director Pablo Larrain backed up by American Producer Daran Aronofsky. This incredible film gave me the shivers at several points -- Shivers of historical recognition reviving my own reactions to the events at the time. Portman is just unbelievable!! -- She got so deep into Jackie's skin that physical resemblance or lack of it was totally by-passed and rendered irrelevant. She captured the Soul! ~~ After this she stands alone as the Next Big Hollywood Diva. All backup roles also perfect, notably Billy Crudupp as the respectful but in-digging reporter whose interview with Jackie frames the story. A clever scenario device that provides a Kane-ish touch. Ends with the feeling that Ms. Kennedy will do anything to preserve the White House as Camelot legend. This picture preserves the Jacqueline Bouvier-Kennedy legend in spades.

PS: Noah Oppenheim was awarded a Best Scenario Silver Lion on Venice awards night.
