MUMBAI: Fox Star Studios India is all set to release Black Swan in India on 25 February, 2011.
Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the psychological thriller starring Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, and Mila Kunis is internationally the most applauded film of recent times.
The film has already won a Golden Globe (Best Actress) and bagged five Oscar nominations (Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing); apart from receiving standing ovations at numerous international film festivals.
Black Swan revolves around Nina (Portman), a ballerina with a prestigious New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side – a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
