I am a super huge political junkie. I follow current politics like nobody’s business. Historical politics? Not so much. That is why I was very excited to see Natalie Portman in Jackie to help educate myself. Pablo Larraín’s new movie opened my eyes to a whole new facet of our former first lady’s world.
The movie’s inspiration seems to be an article written by Theodore H. White (Billy Crudup) about Kennedy’s assassination a week after the fact from an interview with Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. Basically, the snippets we see in the movie form the photographs that could go with the article, “For President Kennedy: An Epilogue.” Jackie sits down with the reporter and we watch the assassination unfold.
This is a terrific movie to take a political or history buff to see. I am sure it will spark some discussions on what type of president JFK was or what is expected of a first lady or a myriad of other topics. There is not much bad language or any sexual content. The assassination is shown, so take into consideration whether a younger viewer could handle it. It has an “R” rating, but I would assume it is for the brief seconds where President Kennedy’s life ends.
“Don’t let it be forgot
That once there was a spot
For one brief shining moment that was known
As Camelot.” -Camelot, the musical
