6:43 pm
of a little boy lost. well, jackie, how timely? yes, extraordinary, isn't it. so this is directed by chilean film—maker pablo larrain, and it's the story of the assassination and aftermath ofjohn f kennedy, as seen through the eyes of jackie kennedy, played, as everyone will know, by natalie portman. there's been an awful lot of interest in her performance, lots and lots of nominations, and the film plays out like a kaleidoscope. it's essentiallyjuggling a series of different time frames that are all meant to be representing her fragmented state of mind, so we have the motorcade in dallas, the aftermath in washington, we have the funeral, the huge sort of funeral arrangements, and we also have a wrap round which is
6:44 pm
jackie kennedy being interviewed by a journalist who, in the film is unnamed, but it's obviously inspired by the life magazine interview. at the very beginning of the interview she says to him, "just remember i'm editing this conversation." and he says, "ok, it's going to be your version of events." here's a clip. you'll have to share something personal eventually. people won't stop asking until you do. and if i don't, they'll interpret my silence however they want? "her brow furrows, her lips are drawn. she holds back her tears but she can't hide her anger." most writers want to be famous. you want to be famous? no, i'm fine as i am, thank you. you should prepare yourself. this article will bring you a great deal of attention. in that case, any advice for me? yes. don't marry the president. are you afraid i'm about to cry again? no, i'd say you're more likely to scream? scream what? "my husband was a great man." and interesting, because people might think we know everything there is to know about that story, is there anything new in this, does it resonate?
6:45 pm
what it does is, it attempts to portray her, firstly as somebody going through an horrendous personal crisis, and we do have the assassination, and it is shocking, as it should be. but also somebody who, in the period immediately afterwards, is constructing the legacy, is basically building the camelot story, which then became the story everybody told aboutjfk. jackie is portrayed very much as first lady of the televisual age, somebody who is a master of the printed word and also the moving image.
