Here are some other White Swans, Black Swans:
Ginger - Casino - to the outside world Ginger is kind, glamorous and has everything worked out. In reality she is a drag addict and alcoholic.
Zed - Pulp Fiction - Zed is wearing a cop uniform. He's probably a police officer, praised in his job, maybe even married with kids. In reality he is a sadistic rapist.
Julianna - Vanilla Sky - beautiful, desirable, fun. Julianna seems like someone who has it all. But in reality she is so alone - something which Cameron Diaz, in her best work to date, nails in the saddest girl to hold the martini scene - she just wants to be loved. When her heart is crushed, the madness takes over.
Mavis - Young Adult - to the people in her small town Mavis is a role model- beautiful, successful, happy. But in reality her beauty requires whole routine to repair her looks after all the heavy drinking she does, her contract is about to expire and she is deeply unfulfilled, stuck with the same hopes she had 10 years ago.
Joe - Killer Joe - another cop with the sinister side. Joe is methodical and cold. But in reality he is into some really kinky stuff with young girls. Plus he kills people for money.
Carol - Repulsion - Carol is shy, virginal, almost afraid of men. But inside she is bursting with unfulfilled sexual desires and passions that start manifesting themselves in increasingly creepy and violent ways.
Laura - The Hours - on the outside Laura is a perfect wife, on the inside all she does is wanting to escape which includes even leaving behind her two kids, including infant daughter.
Diane - Trainspotting - a schoolgirl by day, a wild party girl at night.
Patrick Bateman - American Psycho - a successful....wait, what is this that he actual does for a living? But in reality Patrick is a crazy killer, profoundly depraved, barely holding it together under the facade of normality.
Thanks everyone for participating! And now head out to the linked blogs and check out their Swans.
