Black Swan Natalie Portman is the delicate Nina, an introverted, perfectionist ballerina who lives with her crazy stage mom (Barbara Hershey) in New York City. She lands the role of her life, the Swan Queen in Swan Lake, portraying the White Swan perfectly but frustrating her director (Vincent Cassel) with her lackluster Black Swan performance to the point he replaces her with a rival (Mila Kunis). Paranoia, hallucinations and general lunacy on everyone’s part ensue, and what happens at the end will shock you—that Natalie Portman got that Best Actress Oscar for this role won’t. Extras: Tons of interviews, featurettes on the costume and film design, and a digital copy (BD).
