“Jackie” Starring Natalie Portman - Film History Livestream


We invite you to join us for our latest film history livestream program: "Jackie", starring Natalie Portman as First Lady Jacqueline "Jackie" Kennedy.

The first portion of our two-part program (approximately 30 minutes) will be a brief overview of the film "Jackie", including its historical context, plot summary, things to look for, accuracy, etc.
The second portion of our two-part program will be a full screening of the "Jackie" film (100 minutes).

Jackie is a 2016 biographical drama film directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Noah Oppenheim. The film stars Natalie Portman as Jacqueline "Jackie" Kennedy. Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, and John Hurt also star; it was Hurt's final film released before his death in January 2017. The film follows Jackie Kennedy in the days when she was First Lady in the White House and her life immediately following the assassination of her husband, United States President John F. Kennedy, in 1963. It is partly based on Theodore H. White's Life magazine interview with the widow at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, in November 1963.
The film had its world premiere on September 7, 2016 at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival, where it competed for the Golden Lion. It was theatrically released in the United States on December 2, 2016, by Fox Searchlight Pictures, to positive reviews. It received three nominations at the 89th Academy Awards: Best Actress (for Portman), Best Original Score, and Best Costume Design.
