| A portrait of grace, sorrow, tragedy, elegance, memories, and grief.
Being a history and film buff I had to see "Jackie" as it's a historical film of the memories and times of the life and assassination of President John Kennedy, as told thru flashback and grief trauma memories from the elegant and class act first lady Jackie Kennedy(in a beautiful performance from the wonderful Natalie Portman). Starting like an interview style of a film told by flashback flashback the movie takes place after the death of "JFK", as Jackie is interviewed about the experience and the memories of the death and the impact of the administration, all of this brings out sorrow and emotions from Jackie(as Natalie showed the grief and anger on screen so well)it's just like you as the viewer feel the pain of the first lady. Overall good film that's a showcase of memories showing how tragedy and loss can affect a strong lady along with a nation, this picture is a watch for any history or film buff.

Did You Know?


A key character in the film, was the man known simply as "The Journalist", who was loosely modelled after Life Magazine journalist Theodore H. White, who finds that Jacqueline Kennedy has her own agenda. Stepping into the role was Billy Crudup. Crudup said: "I play a journalist who Jackie calls, to try to get her version of this story of his Presidency out there to the public," Crudup described. "She wants to ensure his legacy is preserved in the way that she imagines it should be, so she shrewdly decides to use the press."


The Journalist: Mrs. Kennedy? They told me to come up. And I'm so sorry for your loss.
Jackie Kennedy: Have you read what they've been writing? Krock and Merriman and all the rest?
The Journalist: Yes, I have.
Jackie Kennedy: Merriman's such a bitter man. It's been just one week. Already they're treating him ...
The Journalist: ...


About halfway through, Jackie is packing to leave the White House. She's using the 3-inch wide adhesive packing tape that makes a loud sound when you pull it off the spool and is commonplace today. That kind of tape wasn't around much until the 70s or 80s. At first it was just used commercially. Before that, large boxes were sealed with tape that was embedded with fibers and had to be wet with water in order to make it sticky.
