Jackie (2016) Rated R

After the assassination of President Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy must work through her grief and trauma in order to protect her children and her husband’s legacy. Starring Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, and Greta Gerwig.

There are a lot of films that are related to the Kennedy family. This is one of many. Although, this one takes an interesting look at the family as Jackie works at overcoming the trauma of the loss of her husband and the aftermath that followed. She wasn’t a dumb woman, and the film showcases her as more human. This does tell the story of her feelings and why she acted the way she did after the assassination. I’m one that wasn’t fond of the choices President Kennedy made in his private life, but I do think Mrs. Kennedy did what she felt she needed to do in order to keep her head above the water. I really thought it was smart to do the story in an interview style. It really promotes what Jackie was thinking in the aftermath. It’s worth the watch.
