I thought Natalie Portman did an amazing job as Jackie, she definitely got her voice/accent spot on. But the movie itself didn't hold my attention (I began to FF scenes). There were some interesting scenes and I did feel for Jackie in all she was dealing with, but the movie seemed choppy with flashbacks, memories and the interview. I didn't enjoy watching this movie as much as I thought I would.

Do people really believe that movies depict the only way of understanding history? How could a director from Chile make a film presenting the Camelot myth of the Kennedys given the impact of the Kennedy Doctrine on South America in the 1960s and beyond? The only positive points were the score by Mica Levi and John Hurt's cameo.
