The monumental shock and dislocation of Jackie’s loss. An utterly believable and engaging car ride from hell. An evocation of this woman’s horror from first to last frame. Clear, empathetic, penetrating.
Great music, editing, directing, design, costume, hair and make-up, cast….. the whole list.
She’s lonely, angry, riven, woebegone and utterly perplexed. Give Natalie Portman that Oscar now!
