the trailer for darren aronofsky's new film starring natalie portman and vincent cassel, black swan is here!! its completely not what i had expected and reveals a bit of a supernatural vibe. it does feel a bit kafka-esqe: she feels like a black swan therefore she becomes one. dun dun DDUUN! anyways, everything portman does is outstanding so i dont expect anything less than a phenomenal performance from her in this new film.READ MORE
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." Searchlight is bringing Black Swan to theaters December 1st.
natalie has been keeping herself quite busy. she already has 5 upcoming films including black swan, thor, and my favorite pride, prejudice, and zombies! i honestly cant wait!!! 2011 will be a great year for her.
