Black Swan

A few heads were scratched when it was announced that Darren Aronofksy would be following up his 2008 Oscar-nominated film The Wrestler with a psychological thriller set in the world of ballet, tentatively titled Black Swan. Myself included.

Really?  A movie about ballet.

But the other reason to get excited for this 2010 release is that, “Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis have sex,” the review reads. “Yeah. You read that right. And not just nice sweet innocent sex either. We’re talking ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.”

I honestly had a hard time reading much past that sentence and partially hope it isn’t true.  These types of things tend to overshadow a movie.
