Jackie is like portraits of glamorous trauma seeping through the paint.
After witnessing one of the craziest Oscar experiences in recent memory from last night, Moonlight and La La Land are surely still buzzing in everyone’s head. But lets not forget some of the other potent films from this season, one of them being Jackie. Only nominated for three Oscars, Jackie failed to take home a single award from last night. However, director Pablo Larraín’s (No) film was one of the best from 2016. Jackie will visually and symphonically haunt you by the end of its cut throat montage. The film looks through the eyes of Mrs. Kennedy (Natalie Portman) herself. Portman gives the role of the lifetime as she fully transforms herself into the First Lady in red. It's a stunning and refreshing depiction from a woman's prospective.
Jackie is rated R (Restricted). For brief strong violence and some language.
