Natalie Portman stars in a new biographical drama film "Jackie", taking the lead role as the beloved first lady Jackie Kennedy. Written by Noah Oppenheim, director Pablo Larrain is taking the Black List entry into the world of movies on a whole new level with Natalie's incredible acting. However, while many people are starting to love the movie, co-stars think some of her performance might be a little too campy.

"Jackie:" From an unproduced script in the Black List to a potentially Oscar-winning Film

Although some script remains unproduced while others are quite unsuccessful films, the Black List, overall, has done pretty well showcasing several Oscar-winners and blockbuster hits. This time, Noah Oppenheim's script "Jackie" is finally entering the theaters. The biggest surprise in the film, however, is Natalie Portman's portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy, which was described by the USA Today as a "stirring and ambitious" performance.

Why many people are starting to love the film?

JFK's assassination is indeed one of the most tragic events in the United States, and the late President's wife has since then been the concern of many. According to USA Today, "Jackie" is centered on Jacqueline Kennedy's life following assassination of husband JFK, and how the first lady struggled and maintained dignity and majesty. With such a storyline and hidden suprises, many are starting to love the film.

Natalie Portman's incredible performance amazes everyone, but some co-stars are a bit doubtful

Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman wowed everyone in her first glance as Jackie Kennedy in the film's first official trailer and during the Toronto Film Festival. One of Portman's salient portrayal of the role is her accent. However, in a report by Cinema Blend, there is something "odd" with the actress' accent, even her co-stars were not sure how to react to it, as what the actress revealed to the source. The accent is said to be a little too different from how Jackie really sounds, and the actress added that her co-stars were thinking that it was a little bit exaggerated.

Nevertheless, the film is getting great reviews from many people. The movie had its world premiere at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival and is said to be released in theaters on December 2, 2016.
