The Husband and I went to see The Black Swan tonight. Date night. Been a long, long time since we have been to a movie.
The film was an intense psychological thriller….at least that’s what it felt like to me. Natalie Portman was disturbingly brilliant. I did mention disturbing, right?
She was also gorgeous and a skilled ballerina. I must say that she certainly deserves all of the accolades that she is receiving for this performance!
I definitely wasn’t up for that level of intensity; but I’ve always had an uncanny ability to cover my eyes when there is the teeniest little thing that I don’t want to see.
I’ve always been a big fan of Natalie Portman’s. She has an incredible way of fully transforming herself into her characters. I admit that I am an especially enamored with her because she had the Chutzpah to shave her head for the movie “V for Vendetta”. She managed to make bald look chic. I’ve been looking hard for a SL (silver lining) to the upcoming baldness.
