History 52'

Jackie without Jack

“Never, ever, publish them!” What was it Jackie Kennedy wanted to keep secret?


Acclaimed director Patrick Jeudy has access to a series of conversations recorded a few months after her husband’s assassination in Dallas on November 22, 1963.


The young widow was then 34, and recounts the past like a novel about her dream life with her husband John Kennedy. The film reveals a series of unknown conversations about history, and their story – including some very intimate secrets and controversial opinions.


The Lady in Pink was continually driven by a dual purpose: that of molding her own image, whilst managing that of the president. She cannot change the past, so she may as well rewrite it and start to build the legend of JFK.
