Comment:From Parisnetdeals

Nina (Portman) is a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her obsessive former ballerina mother Erica (Hershey) who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

This film is a masterpiece. Everything from the costumes, make up, dancing, acting, plot....was amazing.
Natalie Portman gives an outstanding believable performance, you really feel how she feels and you get lost in the film.

Usually I dont watch this type of movie but I love Natalie Portman and was willing to give it a try, you dont have to be into ballet to enjoy this, its a very deep dark erotic film with so many levels! Portman is awesome and deserves every bit of the award for this role, her performance as the white and even more the black swan is great and sucks you into her story, this is one messed up girl who will do anything to be perfect and achieve her goal, well directed and is very well paced all the way through to the shocking ending, certainly worth a watch!

The famous story of the Black Swan is brought to cinema with Natalie Portman in the leading role. A girl who craves to be the leading role of both the white and black swan, but to fully become the part she must truly understand the two elements to the swan.
Portman gives an absolutely mind boggiling performance, she commands the screen and shows a lot of depth to her characters. And on top of her great acting in this film, to watch her dance is absolutely breathtaking.
The writing is flawless, it builds the story brilliantly, it opens up doors and by the end closes all cases, it's a great piece of writing which keeps you engrossed from start to finish.
The directing is also of top standard, Darren Aronofsky stays to his art hosue roots and traditions but manages make this piece a hollywood hit. It's stylish and artistic but still does the fundamental thing of story telling.

Overall: Black Swan is a powerful piece of cinema which you can't miss. Natalie Portman's performance is amazing from start to finish. I can honestly say this is now part of my top 10, a new love of mine.
Must See

 Forever brilliant!
