Natalie Portman Is Perfect In The First Trailer For ‘Jackie’

Fox Searchlight has just dropped the first trailer to the Jackie Kennedy Biopic Jackie‘ starring Natalie Portman as the iconic First Lady in what could potentially be another award winning role.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

Natalie Portman is perfectly cast as Jackie Kennedy. The film follows Jackie as she processes the loss of her husband in front of the eyes of millions. Something that is tragic on its own, let alone with the world watching your every move. Directed by Pablo Larrain, one of Chile’s most famous film makers, Jackie also stars Peter SarsgaardGreta GerwigBilly Crudup, and John Hurt.

JACKIE opens in the US on December 2, 2016. No Aussie release date has been setjackie-poster-700x1050
