Description
1951. Jacqueline Bouvier is hard at work as the Inquiring Camera Girl for a Washington newspaper. When she meets charismatic congressman Jack Kennedy at a Georgetown party, the two are soon flirting over secret phone calls, cocktails, and dinner dates. As Jack grows elusive and absent, she begins to question what life at his side would mean. Jackie turns to his best friend and confidant, Lem Billings, a closeted gay man who has made the Kennedy family his own, and who has been instructed by them to seal the deal with Jack's new girl. Years later, as Lem looks back at his own role in a courtship story full of longing, of what-ifs and possible wrong turns. -- adapted from jacket
