The events covered in the film; the fateful day in Dallas, her return to the White House, arrangements for the funeral, and her time spent accompanying the coffin to Arlington Cemetery, offer a moving tale of a grieving woman, wife and mother and she struggles to maintain her husband's legacy. Larraín has created a near-experimental look at loss and legacy: what could have been a tear-soaked standard biopic is instead bracingly, gloriously his own, and it's all the better for it.
Dir. Pablo Larrain, US, 2016, 100 mins.
Cast. Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, Greta Gerwig.
