A must see, can’t wait!

Absolutely an Oscar Nominee, but someone cand explain to me Minka Kelly in this film?

Looks amazing! I can’t wait to see it. The cast is brilliant and Harvey Weinstein is involved, so I’m sure this movie will play a role when the Oscars come back around.

Looks epic. A film worth watching. Heartwarming. Inspiring.

@Lola: Minka plays Jackie Kennedy. The trailer only shows her briefly, so I’m reserving judgment.

Great cast. Definitely some Oscar nominations. Don’t worry, Minka Kelly won’t be there much.

James Marsden looks AMAZING as John Kennedy. I hope he gets enough screentime. Was disappointed to see his recent movies
