Natalie Portman's performance in Jackie, a biopic about Jackie Kennedy, has been surrounded by an Oscars buzz, and following the release of the first teaser trailer it is easy to see why.

In the trailer, Natalie portrays the First Lady to President John F. Kennedy, showing clips as she goes through the horrific open car shooting to dealing with the aftermath of the assassination, which includes a dramatic scene of her attending her husband's funeral.


Although the trailer has very little dialogue, The Black Swan star's performance has already been praised by fans anticipating the film.

Commenting on the video, one wrote: "This looks really, really good... they might as well just give Natalie the Oscar now".

"Give my girl the Oscar just based on the trailer ready!" another added.

In a voiceover, the 35-year-old delivered one line, saying: "People like to believe in fairy tales. Don't let it be forgot that for one brief, shining moment, there was Camelot. There won't be another Camelot. Not another Camelot."

Natalie will play Jackie Kennedy

The Oscar-winning actress, who recently joked that she hadn't seen her first Academy Award "in a while" is currently expecting her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied, and revealed in an article for The New York Times' T Magazine her life revolves around being a mother to her five-year-old son, Aleph.

"When I'm not working, I'm pretty much exclusively with my family, so my rituals have to do with school, meal preparation, playdates, bed time", she wrote.

"Weekends are best for ritual, because I own them completely. I do the whole week's laundry, which I love because it's a task with a clear beginning and end. And then we spend the weekend together as a family — usually somewhere in nature, often with friends who have children. Lots of cooking."
