Natalie Portman is typically known for her portrayal of classy, independent characters – take Nina Sayers in Black Swan for example. In her latest film, however, she takes on what may be her biggest role yet as the legendary First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
Focusing on the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, the trailer showcases a dramatic biopic framed around an interview forcing Jacqueline Kennedy to reminiscence on time spent with the 35th president of the USA. While the reel of highlights depicts a dignified, elegant woman, the image is quickly shattered by the byproducts of the assassination.
Jackie is scheduled to hit theaters on December 2.
