Black Swan

To those who have not already seen this movie, I suggest everyone go out & watch this right away! This film was absolutely amazing & it deserves all of the praise which it has been receiving lately. Natalie Portman did a phenomenal job playing the tortured soul ballerina, Nina. The film is surrounds a ballet company where dancers live for the attention of a coldly known choreographer, who casts the innocent, anorexic Nina to star as Oderre/Odile, the white and black swan in Swan Lake, in which she must literally break through her body and lose her mind to be reborn an artist. Natalie's performance did an excellent job taking the audience inside Nina's twisted mind while going through the process of becoming the swan, in the kind of transcendent self-loss that only artists know. Not to mention the pretty hot sex scenes, one with herself & one with my new fav Mila Kunis. Plus, most of the stunts were done by her, for she has years of ballet dance experience & she trained for a year, sometimes 8 hours a day, before they even began to film. Portman's Oscar nomination is well deserved, there is nothing but pleasant things in her future for she just announced she is pregnant by her fiance, who is a New York Ballet dancer and choreographer whom she met during shooting. What a great way to start a new year :)
