Mirror, mirror, on the wall...
The much-nominated and awarded Portman tour-de-force arrives at last. It's one of those rare movies that progressed up the US Top Ten, rather than starting high and sliding down. Set in the world of modern ballet, our virginal heroine is in contention for the lead role in a new production of Swan Lake. The problem is that the director wants the same star to play both White Swan and Black Swan, and he feels she is too innocent for the dark role. She is desperate to succeed, and this drives her to do things she would not normally do, lest the role goes to her sexually experienced rival in the company.
