Black Swan


I’m hugely looking forward to watching Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky’s new thriller which revolves around a production of Swan Lake by a prestigious New York City ballet company. The production requires a ballerina to play both the innocent White Swan and the sensual Black Swan. One dancer, Nina (Portman), is a perfect fit for the White Swan, while Lily (Kunis) has a personality that matches the Black Swan. When the two compete for the parts, Nina finds a dark side to herself.

Portman is one of my favourite actors, plus the ballet costumes are all made by Rodarte – can it get much better?

It can. The film posters are beautifully designed, inspired by traditional ballet posters and obviously deeply influenced by Art Deco.

Darren Aronofsky stated that he commissioned the posters with the “aim to convey the grace and fragility of the White Swan in contrast to the aggression and power of the Black Swan,” the central theme of the films narrative.

Brilliant!

  1. Oooo, I wanna see this too. Nothing’s been on at the flicks and now TWO are… this and the King’s Speech 😀 x

  2. Want to see this is much- the posters are divine, wish we could buy them.

  3. This posters are stunning, shame they aren’t the ones I have seen on the tube and elsewhere. Are they not actually using these ones? Can’t wait to see this film though.

  4. Oh are they not using these? The one I’ve seen quite a lot is the third one. What are the posters like you’ve seen Deb?

  5. Its just Natalie Portmans face with a crack in. Just a generic movie poster. I am sad now because these are lovely. Do you mind if I mention this post in a post of mine?

  6. Hi Deb, what an odd choice considering they could use these! Oh not at all, please go ahead!x

  7. i really love dancing-movies of all kinds, but this one is very special and phantastic.

    • I finally went to see it last night – it really is amazing and had me completely enthralled from the first to the last second.

  8. Just saw the movie.
