Black Swan


           Black Swan is a  movie starring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, and Winona Ryder. Directed by Darren Aronofsky who also directed Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Wrestler, etc *That should be reason enough to watch it*. The story is about Nina a young ballerina that gets the head roll in 'Swan Lake'. Since she has to play both roles (the white swan and the black swan) she has to learn not to act prude and perfect. The transformation from one roll to the other plays out into her life at home and her psyche. I would go into a further detail, but I don't want to ruin it. Go see it believe me it's brilliant.
