Black Swan DVD Give Away
The much talked about Academy Award winning Black Swan film is coming to DVD! DancePulp interviewees and New York City Ballet principals Wendy Whelan (The Daily Beast article) and Ashley Bouder (Huffington Post article) have weighed in on the movie and it’s been of much discussion within the dance community. DancePulp guest bloggers The Ballet Bag also have extensive coverage of it. One of our sponsor’s and also a DancePulp interviewee, Yumiko Takeshima, collaborated on the Black Swan costumes and attended the premiere in NYC. It’s a beautiful film and has put ballet in the mainstream public, which we believe is good for dance, despite conflicting views on it’s message and accuracy within the dance community.
Starring Natalie Portman in her Academy Award® winning role, Black Swan is a seductive yet haunting film that will leave you breathless. Directed by innovator Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler), this Best Picture nominated film boasts a wealth of talent including Portman (Closer), in the performance of her career, as well as Mila Kunis (Date Night), Winona Ryder (Girl, Interrupted) and Vincent Cassel (Ocean’s Twelve). In the film that Daily Variety hailed as “…wicked, sexy and ultimately devastating… fascinating,” Natalie Portman’s mesmerizing transformation into the Black Swan leaves you breathless – and wanting to see it again.
Black Swan follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in the New York City Ballet trying to make it to the top. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), also impresses Leroy and becomes Nina’s competition. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly with her innocence and grace, but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan with her fiery personality. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
