The film, which is due out in December, is described as "a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history." It looks at the death of President John F. Kennedy from the perspective of the his grieving wife, then First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. Portman stars as the titular character, and the new trailer shows off her poignant portrayal.
In the preview, we see Jackie trying to carry on after the assassination and protect her husband's legacy. It doesn't look easy, of course. As well as she seems to hold it together in public, she has private moments in which she breaks down completely. Credit Portman for pulling it off so skillfully -- especially if she does actually bring you to tears.
"Jackie" opens in select theaters on Dec. 2.
