Natalie Portman...WOW! She is amazing! She trained over a year for this role...and boy, you could tell! She could not have weighed more than 90 lbs. soaking wet. And, I could sit through an entire ballet with Natalie Portman as a principal dancer...she fooled me! Kudos to her for her performance and for the many awards she will win for this role!
I can't really say much about the plot because if I am being totally honest the verdict is still out! I left so confused! In fact, I came straight home and searched the internet trying to find a synopsis, interpretation, explanation, ANYTHING...and I found nothing! To say that this movie's conclusion is "open-ended" is an understatement!
However, if you are looking for a recommendation then I would say YES, you've got to see it for yourself! As for my opinion on the movie...this SWAN is still is the pitch-BLACK dark! ;)
Now for my wish- I totally wish I were going to Blissdom next week! Call me crazy, call me a dork, I just wish you were calling me in Nashville on January 26th! Who knows...maybe next year! :)
