Ballet's Dark Side Hits Venice
Aronofsky, psychological thriller, aggressive sex, Vincent Cassel…what more could we ask for? Girl on girl action? There’s that too. After opening the Venice Film Festival last year with The Wrestler, director Darren Aronofsky will again debut a new film this year. Black Swan stars Natalie Portman as a prima ballerina who wins the lead role in a New York City production of Swan Lake. Vincent Cassel (holy hotness) is Portman’s “dance master” (uh yeah, I need him as my whatever-master) and Mila Kunis, another dancer who naturally possesses the sultry and seductive demeanor that Cassel wants Portman to develop. Apparently Portman’s character becomes obsessed with Kunis, and the psychological twisting takes off from there.
You know you’re going (except maybe BSlim).
Here’s the first image of Portman in character:
