By now I’m assuming most of you have seen this:
It was beautiful, harrowing, and traumatizing on many levels. See it. And, cry.
Or, just eat this in pity for her.
But, what gets me is what has happened in the aftermath for our audaciously talented Black Swan, Ms. Natalie Portman.
In a role that demonstrated some of the psycho-sexual underpinnings that are rife and embedded in the culture of professional ballet, Ms. Portman seems to be continuing this tale off pointe, as she plans to marry the movie’s choreographer Benjamin Millepied. Except, she gets a happy ending (*with added baby!*) and that is a LOVELY THING.
Still, does anyone else feel like this is a bit strange? Life imitating art…
