I don’t know how great Jackie truly is without seeing it with my own eyes, but if the previous teaser and now this full trailer are any indication, Natalie Portman has solidified her entire career.
Check this out:
How is this one not going to be one of the best of the year? Most who have seen it are in step with this claim, and this trailer only enforces those early returns. It’s rare for so many emotions to leak through in a trailer, so when it happens it’s noticeable.
What should be so fascinating about Jackie, beyond that horrific day in Dallas (the shot of the Secret Service agent riding on the back of the car to the hospital is just incredible), is seeing the former First Lady dealing with the aftermath. She’s clearly battling her lot in life now that the man who got her where she is now dead. There is so much to work with in this story.
The trailer promises balance in this tale, and the Best Actress Oscar is Natalie Portman’s to lose at this point. I’m convinced of it.
Jackie opens December 2.
