Jackie is a searing, intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” they created and loved so well.
