Jackie: An astonishing film that challenges reality, fiction and history

Independent Cinema, Reviews

“I believe the characters we read on the page become more real than the men who stand beside us”.

If I could sum up Jackie in a quote that would be it. A lot has been said about Jackie, mostly (not to say almost exclusively) about Natalie Portman’s flawless performance. I think Jackie is much more than that, it is an extraordinary biopic (“biopic”) about perception, image creation and the thin line between reality and fiction at a time when most of our contact with reality comes from preconstructed images from the Internet and the media.
