Starring: Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel and Mila Kunis
Story: A psychological thriller set in the world of New York City ballet. Featured dancer, Nina, finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company. (Fox Searchlight)
Bottom Line: FIGHT CLUB meets FAME in this darkly off-beat, beautifully stirring and unnervingly-twisted movie that deserve every single inch, yard and mile of Oscar buzz it’s receiving right now. It’s definitely not for everyone (I wouldn’t bother to argue its merits with someone who hates it) but I will say this: Portman for the Best Actress nomination…Portman for the Best Actress win! She’s a whacked-out bird, but this BLACK SWAN soars!
