What Jackie Knew

President Kennedy once jokingly identified himself as “the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris,” which somehow escaped the makers of this fawning French TV documentary about the reluctant First Lady. Writer Gerard Miller gushes that her intelligence “far surpassed that of average Americans”—lucky for her, I guess, since she greedily exploited the material advantages of her role, habitually shirked its responsibilities, and still reaped an outpouring of public affection. The film celebrates her much-vaunted style and carefully documents her growing intolerance of her sham marriage. But in closing with the Zapruder footage, director Patrick Jeudy both betrays his own lack of taste and overlooks Kennedy's most significant gift to her country—her husband's graceful and dignified burial. One thing Jackie definitely knew was how to plan a party. 55 min.
