Reviews:
"Larraín has an instinct for the jugular and a gift for maximum emotional impact, and his disconcerting, intentionally off-kilter JACKIE demonstrates the ability to join an art house sensibility with a broader popular touch..." - 12/01/2016 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Natalie Portman, in a performance that tops her Oscar-winning role in BLACK SWAN, will floor you with her tour de force as the former First Lady." - 11/30/2016 Rolling Stone


"It trusts the audience to figure it all out and speaks to us via intuition, often taking considerable risks and making itself quite vulnerable." - 12/02/2016 RogerEbert.com


"For Portman, this isn’t so much the role of a lifetime as maybe the roles, plural: The notion of multiple Jackies affords her a range of personas, from the poised debutante to the knowing media manipulator to the shattering, bereaved spouse." -- Grade: A- - 12/01/2016 A.V. Club


"[I]t explores the intersection of the private and the public while ruminating on the transformation of the past into myth." - 12/01/2016 New York Times


"[T]his brilliantly constructed, diamond-hard character study observes the exhausted, conflicted Jackie as she attempts to disentangle her own perspective, her own legacy, and, perhaps hardest of all, her own grief from a tragedy shared by millions." - 09/07/2016 Variety


"What emerges is an unsettling, almost hallucinogenic study in contradiction: Portman’s Jackie is soft yet steely, vulnerable yet shrewd, propelled by a fierce, unyielding rage, yet superbly controlled and controlling." - 12/08/2016 Washington Post


"[JACKIE] is about the sorrow, resentment, and fear -- and vanity, and rage, and, finally, strength -- of an ingénue thrust violently alone onto center stage." - 12/07/2016 Boston Globe


"[B]oth wildly stylized and feverishly intimate, a surreal collision of private and public selves played out simultaneously in the exclusive back rooms of power and on the world’s biggest stage." -- Grade: A- - 12/01/2016 Entertainment Weekly


"Natalie Portman does an uncanny job of capturing Jackie Kennedy’s cadence, as well as her walk and her mannerisms, in JACKIE....Ms. Portman is sure to be nominated for an Oscar for her performance, and deservedly so..." - 12/06/2016 Chicago Sun-Times


"JACKIE is an emotionally vivid work, bright and flamboyant at times, but threaded through with compassion." - 12/01/2016 The Atlantic


4 stars out of 5 -- "JACKIE, Pablo Larraín’s gutsy, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy in the run-up to her husband’s assassination, and the aftermath, goes one better by weaving actual archive with its ingenious fabrications, almost as if it’s daring us to spot the join." - 01/16/2017 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "This complicated characterisation asks for a complicated performance and Natalie Portman gives the best of her career." - 01/16/2017 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "From the saddening glissando strings of the opening theme, with its falling invocations of death and discord, Levi provides the unifying emotional glue for Larraín’s deliberately shattered film. " - 01/22/2017 The Guardian
