Jackie is a comedy drama film directed by Antoinette Beumer, from an idea by Marnie Block and Karen van Holst Pellekaan. The leading roles are played by Carice van Houten, Jelka van Houten and Academy Award winner Holly Hunter.
Sofie (Carice van Houten) and Daan (Jelka van Houten) are twin sisters who were raised by two fathers (Paul Case and Jaap Spijkers). When she gets a phone call from America that their biological mother (Holly Hunter) is in hospital with a complicated leg fracture awaiting transfer to a rehabilitation centre, the two are landed in an adventure where everything she believed in being is called into question. This results in an unforgettable journey with the strange and inappropriate Jackie to New Mexico where the lives of the two sisters will change forever.
As in the movie, in real life, Jelka and Carice van Houten are sisters. This is the first time that the two have acted together.
