8. Jackie

Director Pablo Larrain casted Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and when the actress first steps on screen, her hair cropped into that signature bouffant, her  voice is a reasonable approximation of the Jackie O’s affected prep school accent, however her mannerism come across a little studied, a little practiced.  The question then is, whether this movie is really about Jackie or some new reality of her. Her on screen expressions are what make the movie interesting, not a whole lot of dialogue, but I would say that the musical score is a very important character of this film, without it the movie will be different, the music sort of melts with the main character’s emotions.
