The first trailer for the biopic dropped Wednesday afternoon, showing the immediate aftermath of the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The mostly wordless montage chronicles the first lady’s bout with grief and resilience in the wake of the president’s death as she deals with scrutiny from the public.
“People like to believe in fairy tales,” Portman says in the trailer. “Don’t let it be forgot that for one brief shining moment, there was a Camelot. There won’t be another Camelot. Not another Camelot.”
“[We see] the toughness of who she was, dealing with what she had to go through while keeping herself together for the sake of the country and her family,” Portman previously told PEOPLE. “And also the vulnerability and the intelligence of how she really crafted [JFK’s] legacy.”
