Otherwise known as “that ballet film where Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman get it on” around these here interwebs. Or, as more respectable movie folks call it, Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller “Black Swan”. Either way, it’s a movie about the high cost of ballet dancing. And attractive women getting it on.
The dark tale with psychological twists stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a technically brilliant ballerina whose life takes some strange turns after being picked as the lead in a New York City production of Swan Lake. Pressures mount as her overbearing mother (Barbara Hershey) pushes her to succeed and her manipulative dance master (Vincent Cassel) commands her to be more seductive and loose in her performance.
Complicating matters is the arrival of Lily (Mila Kunis), a sultry dancer who exhibits all the innate ease and sexuality that Nina lacks. Nina begins to fixate on the newcomer as the two forge an unusual relationship.
