If you haven't already seen Black Swan it is a MUST see!
There has been a lot of buzz about Natalie Portmans performance in this movie, and she fully lived up to my expectations- which were really high... I also had felt from the trailer I kind of knew the direction- but I was wrong, so I loved not knowing what was coming (because I am the type of person who is always guessing) The way that the movie is film captures the mood of the characters so well. It is a truly dark, and haunting story about which surrounds one of the most beautiful and delicate art forms: Ballet. I was fully convinced that Natalie Portman was a professional dancer, she was graceful, and elegant, and yet very disturbed.
Anyways I don't want to go into the plot- but you need to see this one.... Even just for the music of Swan Lake, costumes and performance make-up(which is garnering a lot of trends currently), the acting is superb, Winona Ryder one of my all time favorites has a small but interesting role, and if that isn't enough it was directed by the incredible Darren Aronofsky; known for Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler.
Watch this Sunday's Golden Globes to see if Natalie will take home the trophy!! I'm sure she will look gorgeous too!!
Always Stay Graceful,
