Aside from “Moonlight,” the other big winner amidst the Spirit Award nominations yesterday was Pablo Larrain’s “Jackie” which scored four nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress for Natalie Portman, Best Director and Best Editing.
After “The Birth Of A Nation” fizzled in the wake of the controversy surrounding it, Fox Searchlight has now setup “Jackie” as its big potential awards contender this year and are going all in on the film which opens December 2nd. Today they’ve released a bunch of stunning new photos from the film which you can see below.
The story is described as a “searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). ‘Jackie’ places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination.”
