Black Swan

This December, probably the most anticipated movie of the season is Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. Black Swan follows the story of Nina, a ballerina in New York City who’s life revolves around dancing. NIna receives the lead role of a show, Swan Lake, but finds herself in competition with a new dancer Lily, who she begins to befriend but also despise. 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. The official selection for the Toronto 2010 International Film Festival and the opening night selection for the Venice 2010 International Film Festival and the lead role Nina played by Natalie Portman and her rival Lily played by Mila Kunis, the movie is creating buzz that it is Oscar worthy.
