Fox Searchlight acquires US rights to 'Jackie'

Natalie Portman walks the red carpet while attending the premiere of her film Jackie during the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday (September 11) at the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto, Canada.

The film centres on the grief-stricken widow and the public scrutiny she faced in the days following President Kennedy's assassination in 1963, and the actress praises her director Pablo Larrain for creating an environment which allowed her to portray Jackie in a way many Americans have not seen before.

The Oscar victor portrays U.S. President John F. Kennedy's wife in the new movie Jackie, which had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday night (11Sep16). "Jackie was the most unknown of the known women of the 20th century".

Netflix asks FCC to control ISP data caps
Netflix has gone on to emphasize that the above-average usage of today is simply the average usage of tomorrow. Your mom may think that you spend too much time on the Internet, but Netflix most certainly does not.

"Responding to the compliment, Larrain said, "[Searchlight's] movies have been an important influence on me as a filmmaker, and it is a personal achievement for me to have them bring this very special story of a attractive, sophisticated and mysterious woman to the world". (Fox Searchlight has first and last right of refusal.) Only gross incompetence on the part of whichever operation buys the film, should they release it before the end of the year, could keep Portman from landing a third Oscar nomination.

Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula called the film "a daring, one-of-a-kind cinematic portrayal of a beloved icon".

With Jackie, Pablo Larraín makes a courageous choice by retelling this story exclusively through the eyes of Jacqueline Kennedy, casting Natalie Portman in a lead performance that is deeply intelligent and carefully measured.

Authorities also searched the flats of the three suspects but had no further details on what they might have found. The suspects were arrested as German police raided refugee shelters in Schleswig-Holstein on Tuesday.

Movies aren't often acquired in Toronto and so quickly put into theaters.

Jackie also stars Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Max Casella, Beth Grant, John Hurt and, after firing Portman to Oscar glory with Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky is on board to produce the political biopic.
