Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan is a fresh interpretation of the 19th century ballet, Swan Lake. The film follows Nina, played by Natalie Portman, as she trains for the part of the white/black swan. A role that requires her to metamorphose from her pure and immaculate persona into an untamed embodiment of raw sexuality. Nina’s agonizing drive for perfection takes her on an odyssey into madness. Aronofsky’s creative style and vision emphasizes the psychosis in this psychological thriller.
