Black Swan will be a psychological thriller which explores the happenings inside the pressure filled world of musicals and ballerina's.
The movie, "Black Swan" tells the story of a New York City ballerina, Nina (played by Portman), who is cast in a production of "Swan Lake," navigating the opposing forces of her mother (Barbara Hershey), her demanding dance instructor (Vincent Cassel), and the enigmatic, seductive rival (Mila Kunis) who leads her down a dark path.
If the photos of Natalie Portman in that make-up and blood red lips is not a preview of the depth of the movie then what is?
"The character was very interesting to play, always challenging and surprising. The fact that I had spent so much time with the idea — Darren and I started discussing doing the film in 2000 — allowed it to marinate a little before we shot," says Portman in an interview with USA Today.
