BLACK SWAN leaps and soars in a haunting dance as timeless as Tchaikovsky. Director Darren ... More

BLACK SWAN leaps and soars in a haunting dance as timeless as Tchaikovsky. Director Darren Aronofsky's fever-dream blurs the fine line that separates high art from high insanity, and his prima ballerina Natalie Portman captures the beauty and the pain of a dancer's commitment in a transformative performance. Lifted to even greater heights by virtuoso visuals from cinematographer Matthew Libatique, BLACK SWAN embodies both a spellbinding portrait of an artist striving for perfection and a horror film about the monster in the mirror.
