Natalie Portman plays Jackie Kennedy – not the public Jackie, the one we know from television but the one whom we never saw: the one who had to deal privately with the loss of the man she loved.
That the man she loved was President John Fitzgerald Kennedy only heightened her loss.
In the first trailer for Jackie, we see a devastated woman hanging on for dear life – yet never, quite, slipping over the edge.
Natalie Portman is Jackie. Jackie will be in select theaters on December 2nd. The trailer follows the jump.
JACKIE: OFFICIAL TRAILER – YouTube
JACKIE is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). JACKIE places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that they created and loved so well.
