Favorite Quote:
"I walked away,
not because I wanted to leave,
but because I wanted to see if you would try to catch me.
And when you didn't,
I had the strongest urge to turn around and come back...again.
But I didn't.
I just kept on walking."

I recently saw The Black Swan, which is a movie staring Natalie Portman. It is rated R, and for a good reason. It starts with a very sweet and innocent girl(Portman), but when she is cast for the role of Swan Queen in the ballet Swan Lake, she is taken over by psycotic visions. She sees herself transforming into the evil character in the ballet, the Black Swan. Portman did a fantastic job of portraying a ballerina who wanted to always be perfect. It has everything a good movie needs, romance, horror, and amazing psycotic twists that keep you on the edge of your seat. Where will this swan end up? See the movie, because you could never guess it.
