a must see...





Over the Christmas break I finally got a chance to see Black Swan and it was so, so good. I saw the trailer quite some time ago and had been dying to see it. Seriously creepy, with so many twists and turns. It was amazing. I kind of want to go back a second time. I just love the how well the creepy aspect was mixed with something so elegant and beautiful as ballet. Natalie Portman is perfect for the part, and how lucky of her to get to wear those gorgeous Rodarte costumes! If you get the chance to see it I highly recommend it. I'm all ballet-obsessed now. And for some extra creepiness, visit ijustwantobeperfect.com (I wouldn't look before bed though, just saying...)

I can't wait for this is come out on DVD!

I can't wait to see it either.
I was never in ballet but I'm totally captivated by that world.
My husband got me ballet tickets for Christmas. We're going on Thursday so maybe I should wait to see the creepier side of that world until after I've been wowed ;)

I was on the edge of my seat the entire film. Natalie Portman was absolutely incredible. It's really a statement on passion and the dangers of pushing too hard for perfection.

Oh, and yes the costumes and make up are stunning!

A must see!

i'm so desperate to see this movie. i'm sure it's going to be great, inspiring yet sad, with anger and happiness at the same time. i believe i've seen all the videos and trailers online. hope i don't have to wait too much long.
the selections of pictures you made are all beautiful.

I read the new Vogue article with her. Apparently she started training the year before filming, two hours a day. At the six month mark it was five hours a day then two months prior to filming it was like eight hours a day because they added choreography and cross training!

It all makes my head spin :)
