November 22, 1963. Dallas, Texas. John F. Kennedy is assassinated, and a sorrowful American quickly realizes… man, his wife is gonna hate this.
The upcoming feature film Jackie tells the story of how, indeed, she did hate that. Rightfully so. Natalie Portman stars as the widowed Jacqueline Kennedy in the days just following her husband’s untimely death. Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Richard E. Grant, Billy Crudup, and John Hurt co-star. Portman is totally getting an Academy Award nomination out of this thing. Rightfully so, probably. The film hits select theaters December 2.
