Julian Read Speaks at JACKIE Screening

The LBJ Presidential Library and LBJ Foundation partnered with the Alamo Drafthouse Austin for a special screening of JACKIE. Julian Read, author of JFK's Final Hours in Texas, joined us to speak before and after the film.

Of the most heavily buzzed-about films of the year, Pablo Larrain's JACKIE is one of the more unique biopics in recent memory, and a strong contender for awards consideration come Oscar time.

Starring Natalie Portman as former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, the film deals with Kennedy's life in the White House...and the crushing fallout following the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy.

Featuring supporting work from Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Max Casella, Beth Grant, Billy Crudup, Richard E. Grant, and John Hurt, with a hypnotic score by UNDER THE SKIN's Mica Levi and luxurious cinematography from Stéphane Fontaine, JACKIE is one of our most highly-anticipated films of the fall.
