Directed by the lauded Chilean director Pablo Larraín, renowned actress Natalie Portman creates a stunning, unexpectedly intimate portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy as a pivotal participant in some of the most defining moments in American history. Telling the story of the events around the assassination of John F. Kennedy through the eyes of his wife allows the viewer to experience and explore the tensions between her reality and the public’s perception of Camelot. Director Larraín has been prolific this year — his other ‘biopic reimagined’ film Neruda is also playing in the Academy Screenings series. (USA, 2016)
