Black swan is an incredible movie, which not only brings to life the harsh reality of the ballet industry but also an incredible story in itself. Natalie Portman is absolutely brilliant in this movie. In my opinion she does a great job of performing as the black swan and the white swan contrary to what the director of the show says. It’s also so great to see that Portman does the ballet herself with only some of the more difficult maneuvers being done by a stunt double. This story has some pretty horrific scenes and definintely isn’t for those who are squeamish. This is the story of a girl who plays the main part in ‘Swan Lake’ but ends up competing another dancer for the role as she is only good at dancing the white swan’s part and the other girl is only good at dancing the black swan’s part. This movie is up for 12 Bafta nominations and is definitely worth seeing!
The King’s Speech
The King’s Speech is such an emotional true story about King George VI and his speech problems, particularly his stutter. This movie is made up of some of the best actors and actresses including Collin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helen Bonham-Carter.
