Black Swan

This picture brings back memories of cowering into our seats and how numb our minds were after.
Well, first off, do not watch this movie with a parent. Also anyone under the age of 16 might not be able to handle it.

That out of the way, it was a good movie, great even. It was just as, if not more, thought provoking as Inception. Extremely dark and twisted, it was so much more than expected. It kept you wondering what was reality and was like walking through a hallway of mirrors, you couldn't differentiate between what was real and what wasn't.
The acting as well was amazing. Natalie Portman plays, Nina, a very fragile and sheltered ballet dancer who lands the lead role in the company's production of Swan Lake. Although she is perfect in the part as the white swan she lacks the sensuality and ability to let go, to portray the black swan, the white swan's evil twin self. Mila Kunis plays a fellow dancer who Nina is convinced is out to get her. But is it all in her head?

We would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a thought provoking film and has the emotional maturity to handle it. It is not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach.
