Full Plot Details

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. She lives with her obsessive former ballerina mother Erica (Hershey) who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

Movie Reviews

Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Steven Rea Wild and woolly, the movie is a breathtaking head trip that hails from a long tradition of backstage melodramas: "42nd Street," "A Star Is Born," "All About Eve," and, yes, that kitschy '90s relic, "Showgirls."
USA Today - 10/10 by Claudia Puig To induce a state of dread and mesmerize with beauty is a rare, paradoxical achievement.
TheShiznit.co.uk - 10/10 by Ali Gray Though it touches on a number of genres and encapsulates several themes, Black Swan is best viewed as a horror movie - a slow creep into insanity that's touching and terrifying in equal measure.
The New York Times - 10/10 by Manohla Dargis Black Swan is visceral and real even while it's one delirious, phantasmagoric freakout.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou Lumenick This eye-popping, inspired and often-demented (in a good way) cross between "The Red Shoes" and "All About Eve" channels horror maestros David Cronenberg, Brian De Palma and Dario Argento.
Philadelphia Weekly - 10/10 by Sean Burns It's either the awesomest stupid movie or the stupidest awesome movie I've seen all year.
Premiere - 10/10 by Kristin Hunt Just like the final performance by its deeply disturbed heroine, Black Swan is perfect.
The Standard - 10/10 by Matt Neal Aronofsky explores the quest for perfection in what is a near-perfect film.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - 10/10 by David Edelstein This is, no doubt about it, a tour de force, a work that fully lives up to its director's ambitions.
Orlando Sentinel - 10/10 by Roger Moore Artful, epic, operatic even, this thriller set in the world of ballet challenges the viewer with its intelligence and depth and wit.
Salon.com - 10/10 by Andrew O'Hehir One of the best movies of the year.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Ann Hornaday A near-masterpiece of a film set in the hothouse world of New York ballet.
