"i just want to be perfect"

Darkly intense or intensely dark, whichever you prefer, Natalie Portman deserves the accolades and the Academy nomination for her role as Nina, the prima ballerina for the opening production of Swan Lake in the movie The Black Swan. The movie follows her emotional and physical transformation as she struggles to prepare for the role of the Black Swan, while dealing with competition from a new ballerina, Lily, who is played by Mila Kunis. It's an emotionally disturbing movie, with some squeamish scenes of self-destruction that I couldn't handle but it is still a beautifully directed movie by Darren Aronofsky.

While I was browsing the web looking for the official movie poster for the movie, I also found these four lovely international versions of the Black Swan poster below, which I love even more than the North American version. They almost have a vintage feel to them, like something you would find in a little dusty antique store in the middle of nowhere. Too bad the studio isn't willing to be just as daring in their poster design for the North American release.
