Check out this new featurette about the making of Black Swan with director Darren Aronofsky. The clip shows how the beautiful visual performances and features of the ballet are shown in the movie.
Aronofsky also makes comparison between his film The Wrestler and Black Swan in this new director's featurette. It's an interesting comparison and one not completely obvious until explained by the director.
You can watch the clip below or see it on the Apple iTunes site.
The film follows a prima ballerina who struggles to connect with both the black swan and the white swan in the ballet's production of Swan Lake. As she struggles to connect with her character, she dives deeper inside her own psyche, slowly driving herself mad.
Black Swan is nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Natalie Portman.
Portman is highly favored to win the Oscar for her harrowing performance as Nina Sayers
