About the movie

‘Black Swan’ follows the story of Nina, a New York ballerina whose life is completely consumed with dance. When the artistic director decides to replace the prima ballerina for the opening production of their new season, ‘Swan Lake’, Nina is the first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily. ‘Swan Lake’ requires a dancer who can play both the innocent White Swan and the sensual Black Swan. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina gets in touch with her dark side. The film received many awards including Natalie Portman’s Academy Award for Best Actress.
