Watch the Trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan
Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis star in mind-manipulating director Darren Aronofsky’s (The Wrestler, The Fountain) thriller Black Swan.
The movie follows the rivalry between two hot-shot ballerinas in a New York City ballet company, the comfortable vet Nina (Portman) and newcomer threat Lily (Kunis). You see, sweet Nina perfectly embodies the persona of the White Swan for the upcoming production Swan Lake, but Lily better nails the mysterious, sexy ‘tude of the Black Swan. Artistic director (Vincent Cassel) needs someone who can be both. Thus, things quickly get real…complete with cryptic skin rashes cropping up on Nina’s otherwise elegant surface.
Judging by the trailer, it looks like the flick combines creepy mom issues, sycophantic competition and some brief lesbian encounters. Oh, and some head-haunting psychological freak-outs. Well, it is Aronofsky.
Black Swan hits theaters Dec. 1.
