Black Swan

Date of review: 22 August 2013

This film follows the story of a young teenage girl who devotes her life to ballet and is determined to acquire the lead role in Swan Lake. She pushes herself extremely hard to achieve this goal, yet all of this takes its toll on her psychological well-being. She becomes good friends with a fellow dancer along the way, but the poison of jealousy slowly seeps into her mind as they compete for the lead role. The ending was extremely beautiful and concluded this film very nicely.
