Jackie"People like to believe in fairy tales," Natalie Portman's Jacqueline Kennedy says in the first trailer for the biopic "Jackie." "Don't let it be forgot that for one brief, shining moment, there was a Camelot."

The trailer is mournful and heavy with emotion, and Portman is stunning and powerful as the First Lady. The movie chronicles the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, and depicts her grief for her husband, her struggle to ensure his legacy, and her resilience in the face of intense scrutiny from the public.
The movie got rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, and Portman is already considered a frontrunner to earn an Oscar nomination. The rest of the cast is stacked, too: Peter Sarsgaard as Bobby Kennedy, Greta Gerwig as Nancy Tuckerman, Max Casella as Jack Valenti, Billy Crudup as a journalist, John Hurt as a priest, and John Carroll Lynch as Lyndon B. Johnson.

"Jackie" opens in theaters December 2.
