We still have about a month left until mainstream film audiences finally get a look at Jackie, but Fox Searchlight has just released a new trailer that demands a Best Actress Oscar for Natalie Portman.
There’s a scene in Jackie which sees the titular First Lady (played by Natalie Portman) preparing to walk out of the private jet carrying her, husband John and their entourage in Dallas, Texas. She’s rehearsing her speech while applying her makeup. Wearing the now iconic pink Chanel suit, she adds the finishing touch: the matching pillbox hat. She stares ahead never meeting his gaze, with a blank expression on her face.
“Ready?” John asks her.
“Of course,” she says with the slightest grin.
