Missed Kevin Spacey at the National Portrait Gallery? Ashley Judd at Gaston Hall or Halcyon House? Leo DiCaprio at Cafe Milano or 1789 Restaurant? You have a chance to catch a glimpse of actress Natalie Portman, who will be filming in town for the movie, “Jackie.”
Sure, many actors have traveled to Washington, D.C., not only for testifying before the Senate or House on Capitol Hill or putting their influence behind a good cause but also for doing their daytime job — working on a movie.
This weekend brings the production crew of “Jackie,” which stars Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy. The storyline focuses on the days immediately after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. The movie is scheduled for 2017 release.
On March 2, Portman will attend a film screening of “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” focusing on life in Jerusalem during the end of the British mandate at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring, Maryland.
