Natalie Portman is coming for an Oscar with her latest role as Jackie Kennedy Onassis in her new film, simply, Jackie. The Pablo Larraín-directed feature follows the First Lady in the aftermath of the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. Can you think of a more on-point casting?

While the film recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, the world at large is only just now being given a taste of what is to come, with a short trailer. The clip promises heartbreak, fashion (the pink skirt suit!), and drama—all things that will surely make it a hit this December when it hits theaters.
