Jackie film review

The film is gloomy, because the dramatic period is narrating, due the terrible events of the assassination of the president John F. Kennedy, Nevertheless is a remarkable work of a amazing team, that has worked very hard to demonstrate the reflection and sorrow how Jackie survived to that terrible period. The film is based on the famous interview that Jackie gave to the magazine Life with the journalist Theodore H. White, Jackie deeply desires to leave an unforgettable testimony of her husband to entire humanity. The film is like a perfect documentary of the events, it has been studied until the smallest details of the facts of the history, like for example when Jackie presents and displays the tour by the white house, or when we witness the events in details of what happened in The plane during her husband’s autopsy.


A very careful film that wants to reflect a human pain, at the same time the courage of a woman, who has lost everything overnight, but strives for the noble memory of her husband, to become a legacy for future posterity .

Oscars nominations

The film is nominated for best actress, Best costumes design and Best Original Score, Natalie Portman’s performance is exceptional, she achieves a great dramatization, getting the viewer to empathize with her character, and the pain she is crossing for.


Natalie Portman spent hours, days, watching the videos of Jackie Kennedy, studying her way to talk, in addition to analyzing, all her movements to achieve the closest resemblance to the first lady, a job that had led her to an Oscar nomination, In which she is presenting to the Oscar as the favorite winner.

Best Costume Design, the wardrobe is not only fabulous but has been studied to the smallest detail, managing to revive a glamorous and elegant Jackie, worthy of a first lady.


The music captures all the intrigue, grief, and depression that the first lady is going through, especially in the most intimate moments, in which she sees great loneliness and sorrow, showing not only immense pain, but a terrible doubt about her totally uncertain future.

The director Pablo Larraín

Pablo Larraín (Chilean director, producer and screenwriter), nominated for the Oscars in 2013 by No, as well as the Golden Globe Awards in 2015 for The Club and in 2016 for Neruda. For me Jackie is not my favorite film by the director, who has already surprised us with No and Neruda, which undoubtedly are a peace of art on the film industry, however in this film Jackie, the director is configured as an international figure arriving at the most of the international career and competing with a cinema of great quality, Pablo is leaving a  beautiful legacy in cinema becoming  a remarkable professional, the Chilean director is the proof that create cinema with passion is to leave everything on the screen.


Who was Jackie Kennedy

Jacqueline LeeJackieKennedy Onassis (née Bouvier, pronounced ; July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States from 1961 until his assassination in 1963.


Bouvier was the elder daughter of Wall Street stockbroker John Vernou Bouvier III and socialite Janet Lee Bouvier. In 1951, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French literature from George Washington University and went on to work for the Washington Times-Herald as an inquiring photographer.

In 1952, Bouvier met Congressman John F. Kennedy at a dinner party. In November of that year, he was elected to the United States Senate, and the couple married in 1953. They had four children, two of whom died in infancy. As First Lady, she aided her husband’s administration with her presence in social events and with her highly publicized restoration of the White House. On November 22, 1963, she was riding with him in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, when he was assassinated. She and her children withdrew from public view after his funeral, and in 1968 she married Aristotle Onassis.


Following her second husband’s death in 1975, she had a career as a book editor for the final two decades of her life. She is remembered for her contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture, as well as for her style, elegance, and grace. She was a fashion icon; her famous ensemble of pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat has become a symbol of her husband’s assassination and one of the most iconic images of the 1960s. She ranks as one of the most popular First Ladies and in 1999 was named on Gallup’s list of Most Admired Men and Women in 20th century America.

A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy


A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy was a television special featuring the First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline Kennedy on a tour of the recently renovated White House. It was broadcast on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1962, on both CBS and NBC, and broadcast four days later on ABC. The program was the first ever First Lady televised tour of the White House, and has since been considered the first prime-time documentary specifically designed to appeal to a female audience.

The film showed Kennedy on a tour of the house with the CBS News correspondent Charles Collingwood. The filmed tour was the first glimpse the American public had had of the $2 million restoration of the White House that Kennedy had helped direct in the first year of her husband’s presidency.


The program was viewed by 80 million viewers, and globally syndicated to 50 countries including Russia and China.

                                       Complete tour for the White house Tour.

Kennedy’s notes for the televised tour were among her personal papers that were publicly released by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in 2012. The papers showed that Kennedy made sure that the names of individual donors who had contributed to the costs of the renovation were included in the script.

            How director Pablo Larraín has recreated the Tour for the White House.

Only a few days of the dead of his husband John F. Kennedy, her daughter Caroline had her birthday and Jackie did not miss her celebration for her children.

The film shows us, does not matter if you are the first lady of a nation, you are also a wife, a mother and woman, and suffering can touch to all of us, However you choose how you wish to overcome your pain, or your lost, to be reborn as a Phoenix  from the ashes, to rise and stant up, to confirm not only the entire world, but also to yourself, I am alive and I will continue strong living until the end. Being positive is a matter of attitude towards life and how we want to live it…

Jackie critica de la película descubre las razones por que Natalie Portman ha sido nominada al oscar como mejor actriz

“Detrás de un gran hombre hay una gran mujer…”   Pero que ocurre cuando ese hombre de la noche a la mañana deja de existir en tu vida, cuando la cama que compartías ya está fría por la soledad y el vacío que ha quedado, como comienza tu nuevo día después de haber dedicado 10 años de vida a una persona que ya no esta a tu lado,  que sentido le das a tu vida y como le respondes a tus hijos que su padre ya no cruzara el umbral de la casa para arroparlo por las noches…


Que futuro te depara cuando tu marido es ni mas ni menos que el presidente de los Estados Unidos, y estas en la mirada de todo un país.

En pocas palabras Pablo Larraín nos trae otra película biográfica con la gran colaboración de Natalie Portman, una película que muestra en detalles los sucesos y acontecimientos durante el asesinato de su marido el presidente John F. Kennedy y los días posteriores a su entierro.

Aún así, durante los días posteriores al asesinato, la Primera Dama demuestra una templanza que pocos podrían haber tenido en esas circunstancias. Y es que, Jackie Kennedy no solo tiene que hacer frente a la pérdida de su marido, también debe afrontar el impacto que su muerte ha causado en el mundo entero.


 Critica de la película

La película es bien dura dado, a los acontecimientos del asesinato del presidente, siendo una obra que desea demostrar el reflejo de como sobrevivió Jackie a ese terrible periodo, la película esta basada en la famosa entrevista que Jackie dio a la revista Life con el periodista Theodore H. White, Jackie desea profundamente dejar un testimonio de su marido para la humanidad. La película es como un documental perfecto de los acontecimientos, esta estudiada hasta el más mínimo detalle de los hechos de la historia, como por ejemplo cuando Jackie nos presenta el tour por la casa blanca, o cuando se muestra los eventos en detalles que sucedió en el avión durante transportaban a su marido para la autopsia.


Una cuidadosa película que desea reflejar el dolor humano, a la vez el valor de una mujer , que de la noche a la mañana lo pierde todo, pero lucha por que el noble recuerdo de su marido, se convierta en un legado para la posteridad futura.

Nominaciones a los Oscars

La película esta nominada  por mejor actriz, mejor vestuario y mejor música, la actuación de Natalie Portman es excepcional, logra una gran dramatización, logrando que el espectador se empatice con el personaje, y el dolor que ella esta viviendo, Natalie Portman nos cometo que pasó horas, días, viendo los vídeos de Jackie Kennedy, estudiando su forma que la caracterizan para hablar, además de analizar, todos sus movimientos para logar el más cercano parecido a la primera dama, un trabajo que la a llevado a una nominación del oscar en la cual  ella  va pisando muy fuerte, como la favorita.


El vestuario no solo es fabuloso si no que ha sido estudiado hasta el más mínimo detalle, logrando revivir a una glamurosa y elegante Jackie, digna de una primera dama.


La música capta toda la intriga, el pesar, y la depresión por la cual la primera dama está pasando, sobretodo en los momentos más íntimos, en los cual se ve la gran soledad y el pesar, mostrando no solo un inmenso dolor, si no una duda ante un futuro totalmente incierto.

El director Pablo Larraín

Pablo Larraín (director, productor y guionista) chileno, nominado a los Premios Óscar en 2013 por No, así como a los Premios Globo de Oro en 2015 por El club y en 2016 por Neruda. Para mi Jackie no es mi película favorita del director, que ya nos ha sorprendido con No y con Neruda, que sin duda son una obra de arte de película, sin embargo en esta película Jackie el director se configura como figura internacional llegando a lo más alto de su carrera internacional y compitiendo con un cine de gran calidad, Pablo esta dejando un legado en el cine y como profesional, el director Chileno es la prueba que crear un cine con pasión es dejarlo todo en la pantalla.


Quien era Jackie Kennedy

Jacqueline LeeJackieKennedy Onassis (de soltera Bouvier; Nueva York, 28 de julio de 1929-ibídem, 19 de mayo de 1994) fue la primera dama de los Estados Unidos y esposa del trigésimo quinto presidente de los Estados Unidos, John F. Kennedy, durante su presidencia desde 1961 hasta el asesinato de su esposo en 1963. Cinco años más tarde se casó con el magnate naviero griego Aristóteles Onassis; permanecieron casados hasta su muerte en 1975. Durante las dos últimas décadas de su vida, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis tuvo una carrera como editora de libros. Es recordada por su contribución a las artes y la preservación de la arquitectura histórica, su estilo, elegancia y gracia. Un icono de la moda, su famoso traje rosa Chanel se ha convertido en un símbolo del asesinato de su esposo y una de las imágenes perdurables de la década de 1960

El tour por la casa blanca.

Tal como el director Pablo Larraín evoca, el tour por la casa blanca fue un gran acontecimiento, si bien la mujer de la época solía cuidar de su hogar y de las actividades sociales de su marido que en este caso era el presidente de la nación de los Estos Unidos. por ello, Jackie nos invita generosamente a su hogar mostrando con orgullo su trabajo en la casa blanca, e introduciéndonos a la historia del hogar de más de 35 presidentes. Jackie con un traje de corte clásico rojo realiza una entrevista televisiva, una escena que el director chileno demuestra a la perfección.

Aquí podéis ver las fotos originales y el vídeo del tour.


La película nos muestra que no importa si se es la primera dama de una nación, también se es esposa, madre y mujer y que el sufrimiento nos puede tocar a todos, pero uno elige como sobrellevar ese dolor, u perdida, para renacer como un fénix de las cenizas, levantarse y confirmar no solo al mundo, si no a uno misma yo estoy viva y seguiré fuerte viviendo hasta el final. Ser positivo es una cuestión de actitud ante a vida y como deseamos vivir la…
