This looks rather glorious. I'm hoping Natalie brings the devastation the role will surely deliver.
She'll have to go some distance to outdo Katie Holmes.
I really like that trailer. Let's hope it's nothing like Nicole Kidman's Grace Kelly.
What a trailer, I went from meh another biopic to
Same here. That shot of her running through the cemetery
well that looks rather fierce *.*
Get that second Oscar Ms Herslag Millepied!
I can't really see her as Jackie O though.
QUEEN OF LIFE!
That trailer is everything
The second trailer is even BETTER
PLEASE don't be SHIT.
Oh my GIDDY AUNT that looks SENSATIONAL
BRING IT, Natalie!
That trailer looks amazing. Do we have a UK release date? I may actually pop to the cinema for that, if the reviews are good.
Just give her the Oscar now and be done with it. She deserves it purely for the trailer!
That's got "Oscar win" all over it- which means it'll either be SENSATIONAL or "Mommie Dearest" levels of camp bad. Either way, I'm ON BOARD
I think things are looking good. It was well received in Venice and Metacritic is up at 97% at the moment. Apparently Nat is amazing which is all very pleasing to read. The director's other films have been very decent too (well, the two I've seen anyway), so I'm hopeful.
Oh, and this poster...
Seeing this today, so excited
Loved this. Far more gloom and doom than even the trailer suggests. i was worried they would try to wrong foot us and shoe horn the dead husband in at each possible moment but he's barely in it. It's ALL about Jacks
Truly a performance for the ages, and the cinematography was exquisite.
The performance was astonishing but as a film I found it dragged a little, despite its relatively short running time. I hadn't ever heard Jackie in real life before so it took me an AGE to decide whether the voice was hammy or not and it appears, although a little exagerrated, she was spot on. The acting beyond the voice was what won it over for me- to convey what she did, mostly in close up, was remarkable. The scenes where it dawns on her that she is being brushed aside were fantastic. Utterly deserving of any accolade for me...
Brilliant performance, but quite a slippery, dare I say it, boring film. I can't say it was a particularly enjoyable watch.
I can only echo the praise for Portman's performance, but I did find the film rather too slight. There just wasn't enough of a story there - at least the way they chose to tell it. I think a more linear exploration of her life leading up to and after the assassination might have worked better. For a film that ran just over 90 minutes, it definitely felt saggy in places.
I'm glad it's not just me who thought it was rather 'light' plot-wise, that's what prevented me from fully investing. Excellent performance from Natalie, she totally owns in and embodies Jackie, she'd be my Oscar pick from what I've seen so far but I've yet to judge Isabelle Huppert. Also echo the love for the cinematography.
No taste bbz!
Her performance was fantastic, but the film was just good.
This was solid enough but to quote the late great Katie H, Natalie's performance was click click click. There wasn't one moment where she wasn't acting, although she did very well.
But it looked lovely and all the random British actors in supporting roles were a bit distracting.
But when oh when are they going to make a film about the true victim of the JFK assassination, poor old Lady Bird Johnson, a woman (not unlike our own HRH Queen) who found herself as the nation's leading lady thanks to circumstances out of her control.
I loved this, it sagged a bit in the middle (should have been 90 minutes) but the performance was everything. It's a shame Emma will take the Oscar over Natalie and Isabelle who both do a lot more.
Watched this tonight, amazing! What a performance indeed. There were a few intense moments that were hard to watch, but that only adds to the brilliance of the film. I also agree that some parts dragged a bit.
The scene where she's wiping the blood off in the mirror...
I'm still struggling to work out exactly how I feel about this. Natalie Portman was absolutely outstanding throughout. It reminded me of her Black Swan performance in the sense that you could really feel the enormous amount of effort she was putting into the role.
The film itself is relatively short but felt much longer at the time. I remember checking my watch a few times during it and so the pacing definitely was off. Having said that, so many moments from the film were playing on my mind over the following few days and I found myself thinking "god, that really was good".
I'm a bit torn between feeling like it was a bit of a drag when watching it to still feeling quite affected by it afterwards.
