Natalie Portman stars as Jackie Kennedy in new biopic that looks at the life of the former First Lady in the days after JFK was shot

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.
Now in a highly anticipated new biopic titled JACKIE, Natalie Portman is set to bring to life the historic event through the eyes of Jacqueline Kennedy.
