Jackie (2016 Chile/Fr/USA), cert. 15

Additional Evening Screening

Director: Pablo Larrain
Stars: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig

The film is set in the immediate aftermath of John F Kennedy’s assassination.  Faced with a toxic combination of political, media and family pressures his widow Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy is afforded little private space to grieve.

 

 

Larraín’s retelling of these events (which also features an appearance by the late John Hurt) brilliantly captures the feverish, dream-like atmosphere of a critical week in American history.

 

 

 

 

 

Portman gives “a performance of mesmeric complexity and commitment” (The Telegraph) as the stricken but controlled woman caught in the eye of the storm.

News Update 19 March 2017

We’ve had a diverse and exceptional week, featuring five much-appreciated films. Tuesday’s Babes in Arms La La Land saw the arrival of a record number of babies (nearly 60!), with the happy atmosphere contrasting with the extraordinarily intense and powerful depiction of war experienced later during Hacksaw Ridge.

On Thursday, Denial justified praise such as “One of the most powerful and riveting courtroom dramas ever made” (New York Observer), so please keep in mind that there’s another opportunity to see this at 19:30 on Wednesday 5 April. Read More……..
