COMPANION PIECE: JACKIE
Coinciding with the release of Spencer, Pablo Larrain’s ghostly and inventive vision of Princess Diana fighting for her sanity, we give you another shot at revisiting Chilean director’s other bold psychological portrait of that other female icon.
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.
