This phenomenally successful film was a box office smash when it was released, grossing $329 million worldwide. Directed by Darren Aronofksy (Requiem For a Dream). And starred Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Vicent Cassell. ‘Its plot revolves around a production of Tchaikovsky‘s Swan Lake ballet by a prestigious New York City company. The production requires a ballerina to play both the innocent White Swan and the sensual Black Swan. One dancer, Nina (Portman), is a perfect fit for the White Swan, while Lily (Kunis) has a personality that matches the Black Swan. When the two compete for the parts, Nina finds a dark side to herself.’
