Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that Darren Aronofsky's new film Black Swan, will get a limited release in select cities on December 1st. Just in time for Oscar season.
Aronofsky directed the film from a script written by Mark Heyman, and the film stars Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder.
Black Swan is a psychological thriller set in the world of New York City ballet. Nina (Portman) is a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company (Mila Kunis). Black Swan takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.
The film is set to open the Venice Film Festival in September, and it will hit the Toronto Film Festival a few days later.
