I have been waiting for this movie to come out for months and am so excited that the trailer is finally available to view. Black Swan is Darren Aronofsky’s sixth film which is premiering at the Venice International Film Festival next month and is set for release in December 2010.
It stars Natalie Portman as Nina, an up and coming ballerina in a New York City ballet company who is cast as the lead in Swan Lake and who is in direct competition with Lily, another talented dancer in the company, played by Mila Kunis. Nina lives with her overbearing mother who is a former ballerina played by Barbara Hershey. Rounding out the cast are Vincent Cassel as the company director and Winona Ryder as a prima ballerina.
The film is a psychological thriller and from the looks of the trailer it either has hints of the supernatural or it chronicles the descent of a dancer into stress induced madness. One way or another it looks amazing and I cannot wait to see it.
