Inspired loosely by the famous ballet the Black Swan, Natalie Portman is Nina Sawyers, a ballerina who is vowing the prized leading role in a production of the black swan; Nina like any professional dancer is completely obsessed and consumed by it. An obsession fed by her domineering and strict mother, an ex-ballerina. The role requires, two very distinct traits, as she will play personas, the innocent white sawn, and her alter ego the dark black swan. While Nina fits perfectly the white role, another “Lily” seems to be more fit to play the darker sawn. A rivalry slowly slips into a weird friendship, and much more. Slowly Nina, is awakening a repressed side in her, and slowly takes us on an interior-waking nightmare, where the line between real and imagined is blurred.

A movie not to be missed, the must see movie of the decades. Portman delivers a gripping touching performance as a woman, winning her dream and losing her mind in the process. Impeccable production, direction and a superior cast; this is essential viewing for all film lovers, an absolute treat.
