2010, Rated R
Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) gets cast to play the coveted role of Swan Queen in an upcoming ballet. While she stresses about her technique, her boss (Vincent Cassel) stresses about whether Nina will be able to lose control, and play both the Black and White Swans with equal conviction.
At home, Nina’s mother (Barbara Hershey) struggles with her daughter’s success, and becomes distraught when Nina befriends another dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis).
Desperate to be as perfect as her predecessor (Winona Ryder), Nina pours all of her efforts into losing herself the way that a perfect Black Swan should, but the task might cost Nina more than she has to offer.
