queerguru reviews Jackie

It’s quite extraordinary that acclaimed Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín known mainly for his generally aggressive dramas interspersed with violence about his own country,  should choose such a quintessential American story as Jackie for his first English speaking movie.  The fact that he succeeds so well with his version of the accounts in the week that immediately followed the tragic assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 as seen through the eyes of his grieving widow is due mainly to Natalie Portman’s powerhouse performance as one of this country’s most iconic First Ladies.

queerguru reviews Jackie for P.T.V. as it opens at the Waters Edge Cinema in Provincetown.
