The assassination of president John F. Kennedy is one of the defining moments of American history and tragedy in the 20th century. A new film is about to be released on the subject. However, instead of recounting the historical, the new film will center on the ramifications that JFK’s assassination had through one person: his wife Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman) in the film “Jackie.“
In the movie, Jackie, who is best known for her dignified composer, is now put though extreme trauma as she must not only keep herself together for her children, but for the entire nation. As the days go on and JFK’s funeral comes, Jackie must reflect on the ‘Camelot’ that her helped create for the nation, and the future for herself, her children, and her nation.
The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard as Robert Kennedy, John Carroll Lynch as Lyndon B. Johnson, Greta Gerwig as Nancy Tuckerman, with Billy Crudup and John Hurt. It is directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Noah Oppenheim. “Jackie” comes out on December 2, 2016.
