Directed by Pablo Larraín (No, Neruda) and written by Noah Oppenheim, the film stars Academy Award winner Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, Academy Award nominee John Hurt, and Peter Sarsgaard.
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.
Jackie is produced by Juan De Dios Larraín, Darren Aronofsky, Mickey Liddell, Scott Franklin, and Ari Handel. The filmmaking team includes cinematographer Stéphane Fontaine (Rust and Bone), editor Sebastián Sepúlveda (The Club), production designer Jean Rabasse (The Dreamers), costume designer Madeline Fontaine (Amelie) and music by Mica Levi (Under the Skin). Oppenheim’s original script won Best Screenplay at this year’s Venice International Film Festival.
