Jackie is principally set during her interview with White with regular flashbacks to the fateful day in Dallas and the subsequent turbulent ones leading up to JFK's funeral. There are appropriately understated references to JFK's notable peccadillos. I learned a great deal about the planning of the funeral and especially Jackie's indomitable will that the funeral be an homage to the late president, filled with historical significance, and framed with her aesthetic eye.
The final point--Jackie's acute aesthetic judgment--provides a constant and subtle subtext for the film. Jackie was not merely stylish or simply a purchaser of haute couture. She was an understanding patron of the arts who set her own dying days in an aesthetic framework.
Jackie is not a great film but is a competent study of real but inconsistent human strength set in a period of American history that, because so much of it was televised, continues to cast a long shadow in American political life. We enjoyed it and recommend it.
