We've showed you the trailer of "Jackie" before, having great expectations about the actual movie with stunning Natalie Portman in the leading role of Jackie Kennedy. With the International Film Festival Rotterdam in January, I've got the opportunity to visit the screening and beeing left astonished by the amazing resemblance and total look and feel of the phenomenal Jackie Bouvier Kennedy. This was her story, her feelings and her dealing with the sudden death of her husband, the president of the United States.
Especially the White House Tour was acted just perfect. When I got home I looked up the original one, to be even more amazed of how Natalie Portman even took all the tiny errors of Jackie in her own role as Jackie. See the original White House Tour by Jackie Kennedy in the following link: Jackie Kennedy White House Tour 1962
For comparisson with the latest movie, you can see the next clip: Jackie Kennedy 2016 vs 1962
It is impressive to see how much Jackie Kennedy actually knew by fact and numbers when it came to the history of her country and the heritage of it that she worked so hard on bringing back to her house.
An Oscar for Natalie Portman, please. That's all we're asking for
