The Black Swan

Summary:  Nina (Portman) is a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance.

Cast: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder.

My Thoughts: Holy Crap! This is an awesome movie. I was very late  on watching this movie because I was just not in the mood to watch it when it was available.Nina (played by Portman) was this beautiful innocent girl that was  obsess with  being perfect. She evolve through out the movie and it was nicely done;You see her going from this innocent child-like girl to this rebellious angry young woman. The chemistry between Lily (played by Mila Kunis) was a bit lacking but it enough to make this story work. I was anxious during the whole movie because of her you can feel she was trying very hard to express herself outside of what she was comfortable. The anger, sadness, confusion and the stress could be felt. Everything about this movie was awesome. I honestly have never seen a movie that took me on an emotion ride like this one before. 

Pros: The whole flow of the movie was great. The acting was phenomenal. 
Cons: None.
Verdict: Buy it.
