It was an intentional artistic choice for Director Pablo Larraín to shoot this movie entirely on 16mm film, so as to capture and re-create the vintage look of the 1960s. Another period piece that came out at the same time, to use this technique, was Hidden Figures (2016), shot entirely on 16mm and 35mm film. See more »
In the film the Journalist played by Billy Crudup interviews Jackie for an article. The location in the film is portrayed as "Hyannis Port" when in actuality Jackie was interviewed in early 1964 but it was in her new townhouse in the heart of Washington. See more »
Mrs. Kennedy? They told me to come up. And I'm so sorry for your loss.

This movie is overrated. The problem of this film it focuses only on a short period of Jacqueline's life - JFK assassination and funeral arrangements. The film is lacking plot and really does not show anything attractive for audience. It show Jackie as smoking and drinking person, who focuses on funeral arrangements to keep the memory of JFK. That's all.
