JACKIE dir. Pablo Larrain (2016)
I was skeptical heading in but Larrain hit me in the Mad Men+Malick sweet spot and made a beautiful, graceful film. Portman's first scene was a little shaky but nothing else seemed like an impression, she became inseparable from the first lady of the twentieth century.
