Natalie Portman's Black Swan Photos Released

USA Today reveals the first look of Natalie Portman in her major role as Nina in the movie "Black Swan". The movie will be the opener of the Venice Film Festival on September 1. This marks the return of Aronofsky whose first film, "The Wrestler" won the Golden Lion at the 2008 Venice festival and and garnered Mickey Rourke a Best Actor Oscar nomination.

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.
