The assassination of John F. Kennedy in November 1963 shook the whole world. As hard as it hit everyone else, the person most affected was his widow Jackie. Trying to cope with unbearable grief, sorrow and loss, she still had to plan her husband’s funeral, console their children, and somehow find a way to define what JFK’s legacy would be, but there’ll never be another Camelot.
This is a devastating psychological portrait of her life after her husband’s murder, driven by one of the most acclaimed performances of the year from Natalie Portman.
