Here’s Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy in the ‘Jackie’ Trailer

+

The story of John F. Kennedy’s assassination has been covered from almost every angle imaginable, so it’s surprising that there has yet to be a biopic told from the perspective of his widow. Jackie, starring Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy, picks up shortly after the tragedy, and follows the bereaved First Lady as she attempts to hold it together in the aftermath, through the funeral, and public appearances.

“People like to believe in fairy tales,” Portman intones in the film’s first trailer, which also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig and Billy Crudup. “Don’t let it be forgot that for one brief, shining moment, there was Camelot.”
