Entertainment One has released a powerful brand new UK trailer for Pablo Larrain’s Jackie Starring Natalie Powerful. A searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history.
The trailer highlights the emotional depth, eeriness and loneliness our titular character suffers in the aftermath whilst trying to keep public face as well as a strong mother.This also shows why Larrain’s first English Language is been hotly tipped for Oscar glory.
With Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy/ Onassis as well known as her deceased husband John F.Kennedy assassination, it looks like won’t play to those familiar tropes. What we get is something atmospheric, heartbreaking, sorrow-ridden, delicately intimate.
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.
January is turning into one of the best starts to a new year in a long time. We have seen several of the movies already and can openly say those movies are living up to the buzz. Jackie is one of those movies we haven’t seen yet but from these beautiful trailers, Natalie Portman looks deserving of awards glory.
Portman said herself whilst researching for her role she found there were two sides to her character. One softly spoken, when conducting interviews, but for Arthur Schlesinger ( Jackie’s friend and historian) deeper and more personal.
Jackie is set for a 20th January 2017 UK release date and will co-stars, Billy Crudup, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, John Hurt, Richard E. Grant, and John Carroll Lynch.
