I finally saw Black Swan on Thursday. It was amazing. I really wasn’t sure what I thought about Natalie Portman before this film. But I’m officially on board now. I mean you have to be pretty dedicated to lose 20 lbs and workout 6 hours a day for a role. And she played both parts – the white, innocent swan and her alterego, the black swan – so well. It’s most definitely the kind of film you need to watch a few of times to get all the nuances. I must admit, I’m coveting all soft and feminine things now – pastels, feathers and soft makeup.
