Trailer: Natalie Portman Enters Oscar Race With Jackie



On paper, Jackie always seemed like little more than Oscar bait. With the arrival of an excellent teaser trailer and now a stunning full-length trailer, Pablo Larraín’s film rests easily among this writer’s most anticipated 2016 films yet to see release. Stéphane Fontaine’s stunning and moody period cinematography alone is enough to turn heads, but the trailer also showcases some excellent writing in addition to what promises to be a very compelling turn from Natalie Portman. Word of mouth is already very positive for the film, and it’s likely to having a strong showing when Awards season officially begins in the coming weeks.

Jackie follows the widow of JFK in the moments after his assassination and leading up to his funeral. The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, John Carroll Lynch, John Hurt, Richard E. Grant, and Billy Crudup. It will begin its limited release run December 2.


About Author

I never knew how movies could make your imagination soar until I saw "Star Wars," I never realized how inspiring they could be until I saw "Rocky," and I never truly appreciated film until I saw "Goodfellas." Film has been a central part of my life as long as I can remember and it continues to mold who I am. My " movies to watch" list is miles longer than my "movies I have watched" list. My only regret is not having enough time to watch them all.
