Black Swan

Natalie Portman stars as ballet dancer Nina.
Filmed: New York City, late 2009
Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
Release date: December 3rd, 2010

The unbeatable duo of composer Clint Mansell and director are back. Their latest masterpiece, a psychological thriller takes place in a metropolitan ballet company. "Black Swan" explores the murky depths of ego and obsession, nothing short of what we've previously seen from Aronofsky. It was premiered at the 2010 Venice Film Festival.

Casted in the story are the aforementioned Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis (who also has a role in the upcoming Friends With Benefits), frenchman Vincent Cassel, and Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice; although in my memory, she plays the charismatic Susanna in Girl, Interrupted). Ballet classes were taken and meticulous practise led up to the filming. Visit the official site.
