The assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 was one of those moments that defined a generation.
That this handsome, charismatic leader with a beautiful wife and two young children could have his life ended so brutally, defied comprehension.
Director Pablo Larraín retells this story solely through the eyes of Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman) in the lead role.
Jackie was as much a public figure as her husband, an outwardly poised partner who was placed under great scrutiny, yet played her role with consummate grace.
Structuring his film around Theodore H. White’s LIFE magazine interview with the First Lady, that took place a mere week after the assassination of her beloved husband,
Larraín takes us on a journey as the First Lady recounts the immediate aftermath of her husband; her return to the White House, arrangements for the President’s funeral,
and her time spent accompanying her husband’s coffin to Arlington Cemetery.
These sequences complete a moving portrait of a grieving woman — a widow and mother struggling with overwhelming tragedy and attention.

Straight from its Cannes Competition berth, Pedro Almodóvar’s new film is a dramatic, emotional story of a woman’s loves and regrets told in the master’s distinctive style.
Adapted from Alice Munro’s short stories, Julieta (Adriana Ugarte) is about to leave Madrid to live in Portugal when she runs into Bea (Michelle Jenner),
the childhood friend of her daughter Antía. This chance meeting sets off a range of emotions in Julieta, and she begins to write a long and revealing letter to her daughter –
one filled with regret, guilt and love. With a sense of mystery, an expressive score and his trademark use of vibrant colour, Almodóvar has made a film of spellbinding beauty.
