Natalie Portman won the 2010 Best Actress OSCAR® for her stunning performance in this dark psychosexual thriller directed by Darren Aronofsky. Nina (Portman) is a talented but unstable ballerina on the verge of stardom. Pushed to the breaking point by her artistic director (Vincent Cassel) and a seductive rival (Mila Kunis), Nina’s grip on reality slips, plunging her into a waking nightmare.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Bracingly intense, passionate, and wildly melodramatic, Black Swan glides on Darren Aronofsky's bold direction -- and a bravura performance from Natalie Portman.

Magnificent, macabre thriller too intense for young teens.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this dark gothic thriller centers on a dancer (played by Natalie Portman) who's so obsessed with perfection that she’s obliterated by it. Her pursuit is tragic, filled with self-mutilation and fear -- all of it intense material that may prove too much for younger viewers. Expect many disturbing scenes of mental and physical anguish, some violent fights, and a character who hurts herself and purges -- perhaps in response to the pressures she puts herself under. There's also some swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), pill-popping, and a few graphic, sexually-charged scenes (including one with bare breasts and another featuring two women).
