Image result for black swan

A quiet, technically-perfect ballerina, Nina (Portman), strives for the lead part in her company’s upcoming production of Swan Lake, but the artistic director thinks she’s too nice for the dark aspects of the role. Stunning visual work, dedicated performances, and all, I was unmoved by this picture. I appreciate the central theme of Black Swan, its unique take on artistic commitment, but found its compelling narrative overly shallow.
