first look of the black swan
here are stills from darren aronofsky's new film starring beautiful natalie portman in black swan!! the film is going to open for the venice film festival in september. as well as portman, black swan includes mila kunis as portman's rival dancer, winona ryder (girl, interrupted), sebastian stan, barbara hershey and vincent cassel (irreversible).
USA Today: "The dark tale with psychological twists stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a technically brilliant ballerina whose life takes some strange turns after being picked as the lead in a [NYC] production of Swan Lake. Pressures mount as her overbearing mother (Hershey) pushes her to succeed and her manipulative dance master commands her to be more seductive and loose in her performance. Complicating that is the arrival of Lily (Kunis), a sultry dancer who exhibits all the innate ease and sexuality that Nina lacks. Nina begins to fixate on the newcomer as the two forge an unusual relationship."
cant wait!!! and seriously, kunis? hahah from the book of eli to this. this is pretty big for her. we'll see if she can hold her acting abilities on the same screen as portman and cassel.
