  • 3 stars "It was okay, apart from Natalie Portman who drove me nuts with that pathetic accent and annoying speech impediment. I felt really depressed after watching it. She knew he was an adulterer, he denied her small pleasures and seemed insufferable, at least from her point of view. But she was angry, by his death, by the position she was put in, by the horrific situation. Understandably so. What a horrible life she had, despite all the wealth. Money does not buy happiness."
  • 3 stars "Jackie was not bad a little weird but I give a A+ for effort. It's hard to put into words but I thought the acting was fair but over all ok film"
  • 3 stars "Brilliant Performance by Natalie Portman"
