Hey gang! Black Swan opens up in theaters today, and if it's playing in your area I highly recommend you go and check it out this weekend! This is one of my favorite movies of the year, and if you want to see an Oscar winning performance by Natalie Portman, then this is a must see film! You can read my review for the movie here.
Fox Searchlight just released a great new international trailer for Black Swan, and in my opinion it's the best trailer for the film I've seen so far. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
The movie follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
