Black Swan: Must See

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!!

For those of you who saw it- what were your thoughts??

Always Stay Graceful,



  1. no secret here - I am obsessed with this movie! to be honest it is the first movie that has actually made me feel some emotion while watching it in a loooong time.

    performance was amazing, music, costumes, everything it was haunting and scary and sooo sexual i thought it had everything a movie needs. great performances they rarely make movies like this these days (or at least I rarely see them).

  2. I can't wait to see it. I really like Natalie as an actress and the costume design looks amazing :)


Thanks so much for all of the lovely comments!
Always Stay Graceful,
