There’s perhaps no more famous First Lady in American history than Jackie Kennedy, the kindhearted and fashionable wife of John F. Kennedy, who stayed lovingly by his side during his presidency, and worked feverishly to honor his legacy in the days following his assassination. That story, in the wrong hands, could have been the kind of cold and emotionless biopic that most filmmakers would have simply bunted with, and still somehow managed to receive awards attention because of its subject matter alone. But that’s not Jackie, which coming from Chilean director Pablo Larrain is a haunting and poetic portrait of one of America’s most famous female figures. Luckily for all of us, it’s also one of the best films of the year.
