After seeing the trailor (below) and reading up on the movie, I don’t think December 1st can come soon enough!
A psychological thriller set in the world of New York City ballet, Black Swan stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company. Black Swan takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect. Black Swan also stars Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder.
Reviews on the internet are mixed and although it currently has a rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes–12 fresh, 1 rotten–, it’s too early to really be able to tell. I almost always check reviews before I go see a movie in the theater, but I don’t think bad reviews will prevent me from checking out Black Swan! From the preview it looks like Portman and Kunis do a good job and at least Porman will be recognized come awards season. The cinematography and visuals look stunning as well! The film is supposed to have a limited release on December 1, 2010, but I don’t know if I can wait that long!!!
