Natatlie Portman as Jackie Kennedy

We’ve seen films tackle the story of John F. Kennedy from nearly every angle —

JFK with Kevin Coster saw a DA investigating the assassination, Parkland with Zac Efron depicted what went down with the doctors trying to save the President’s life, even X-Men: Days of Future Past fictionalized his death with mutants. Now we shall see what Jacqueline Kennedy was up to following the tragic event. Natalie Portman portrays the renowned First Lady in Jackie, and we have a first look at her performance.

    I’ve never really enjoyed Hollywood movies trying to portray the Kennedys. I can’t put my finger on it as to why, though.

    Also – and not to nitpick here – but whoever is running this website, can you please make external links open in a new tab or window in the browser? It’s very annoying to click on a link and it opens in the same window.

    Thank you.

    JD and James – agree with both of you.
