Jackie ★★★★

A gorgeous mood piece presented like a symphony, Pablo Larraín beautifully captures the aesthetic of the 1960's and the gloom that was December of 1963. Portman goes hard on the Jackie Onassis accent which is more distracting than needed but it's also added hours of entertainment as I can't stop mimicking her in my daily life. The recreations of the iconic imagery of the Kennedy's is moving as well as the journey through the real life inside the White House with a devastated widow. The film contemplates what legacy JFK leaves behind which was turmoil at the time but now we can see how many amazing pieces of art and film he's inspired and doesn't it seem worth it?
