Movie Review

Black Swan (2010)

I got to see this much talked about movie ‘Black Swan” starring Natalie Portman. Natalie Portman won the Oscar Academy Award for Best Actress for the film which added to the excitement. The story is about a New York Ballet company doing Swan Lake Ballet. The Ballet requires a ballerina to play dual characters – an innocent white swan and a sensual/dark Black Swan. The plot revolves around how Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) transforms herself from her natural white swan to black swan. Mila Kunis who I have seen earlier in The 70’s Show acts as Lily who is another competent Ballerina who competes with Nina for the role.

An excellent performance by Natalie, both in terms of the Ballet Dancing and for an excellent portrayal of Black Swan and hallucinations. I didn’t find any surprises or twists, but still found the movie to be good. My wife had difficulty in following few places especially the ending.
