Consensus: Jackie offers an alluring peek into a beloved American public figure's private world -- and an enthralling starring performance from Natalie Portman in the bargain.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

This is a movie about power, and its spectacle is that of a woman almost losing all of it. Larrain portrays all of this with the appropriate degree of horror and sorrow.

"Jackie" is a gamble, and Portman makes it pay off.

Portman's portrayal of explosive yet restrained grief packs a punch, and Jackie's loneliness is palpable, emphasised by the White House's enormous rooms, Mica Levi's disquieting score... and cinematographer Stéphane Fontaine's long shots.

Portman is simply brilliant, getting to the essence of Jackie without resorting to a mere impersonation.

Together [director Larrain and star Portman] trap the character on film, like a rose frozen in a block of ice.

[An] engagingly unconventional chronicle of the days between JFK's assassination and his elaborate state funeral.

The title character never emerges from the iconic shell she inhabits to become a fully fleshed-out individual and the filmmakers are perhaps too reverential to make her seem real.

It is a fever dream of a movie, tracking its subject as she tries to maintain control, maintain her composure, her sanity.

Subtle, dark, and quietly powerful, Jackie features a terrific performance from Natalie Portman and delivers an important commentary on American culture.
