Directed by innovator Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler), this Best Picture nominated film boasts a wealth of talent including Portman (Closer), in the performance of her career, as well as Mila Kunis (Date Night), Winona Ryder (Girl, Interrupted) and Vincent Cassel (Ocean’s Twelve). In the film that Daily Variety hailed as “…wicked, sexy and ultimately devastating… fascinating,” Natalie Portman’s mesmerizing transformation into the Black Swan leaves you breathless – and wanting to see it again. Become part of the haunting phenomenon and own BLACK SWAN on Blu-ray or DVD on March 29th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in the New York City Ballet trying to make it to the top. 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 a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), also impresses Leroy and becomes Nina’s competition. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly with her innocence and grace, but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan with her fiery personality. 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.
When I asked the family to watch Black Swan with me, a couple of them wrinkled up their nose and said that they didn’t want to watch a ballet. After a little encouragement from me, all four of us sat and watched it.
First of all, I have to say Natalie Portman was beyond fantastic in this movie. She made her character so believable and kept me guessing the entire movie. I couldn’t decide what was going on with her… was she mentally unstable? Was she a victim nobody believed? Was Lily out to get her?
The ending left me with my jaw open and asking my husband and daughter to explain it. This is the type of movie that you want to own so you can watch it a couple of times to completely get the entire storyline. I was engrossed with the storyline the entire movie.
You can pre-order (available March 29) Black Swan on DVD for $14.99 (regular price $29.98) at Amazon.com
