'Black Swan'

MoviesBlack Swan (movie)EntertainmentVincent CasselDarren AronofskyNatalie PortmanMila Kunis

Natalie Portman rightfully earned raves and many awards - including an Oscar - for her impressive, complex portrayal of a ballet dancer who projects herself too much into the themes of "Swan Lake," the piece she is chosen to star in.

Not helping is another dancer (Mila Kunis, also excellent) whose friendship with the Portman character turns toxic. Director Darren Aronofsky's solid cast also includes Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey (stunning as Portman's mother) and Benjamin Millepied, the film's choreographer who is now Portman's real-life fiancé and the father of their forthcoming child. **** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
