Natalie Portman ( pic­tured) won the best ac­tress Os­car for her role as in­tense bal­le­rina Nina in this mind- bend­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller from di­rec­tor Dar­ren Aronof­sky ( The Wrestler). When artis­tic di­rec­tor Thomas Leroy ( Vin­cent Cas­sel) chooses Nina to re­place prima bal­le­rina Beth MacIn­tyre ( Wi­nona Ry­der) in the lead role in the pro­duc­tion of Swan Lake, Nina is thrilled to be in the spot­light, but soon finds a ri­val in new dancer Lily ( Mila Ku­nis) who is wait­ing in the wings. The grace­ful Nina is per­fect for the role of the del­i­cate White Swan, but slowly loses her mind as she be­comes more and more like the evil twin sis­ter of the White Swan, the Black Swan.
