Leslie Goddard will portray first lady Jackie Kennedy in 1964, as the former First Lady is besieged by sightseers around her home in Georgetown. As she deliberates what to do next, she shares her life story and her years in the White House, her struggle to maintain her privacy from the media, her restoration work, and her efforts to showcase the arts. In a climactic revelation, she recounts her husband’s death and comes to a heartfelt decision about how to begin a new life for herself and her children. Want to support this event?
