Scene of the Week: Black Swan

By s. Tuesday, October 18, 2011 ,
Black Swan
directed by Darren Aronofsky

The scene: After ecstasy fueled evening at the club Nina (Natalie Portman) and Lily (Mila Kunis) get inside the cab - Lily, fun loving girl holds Nina's hand - Nina is a shy ballet dancer who probably never even been in a club prior to that night. The girls exchange glances and then straightforward Lily starts seducing innocent Nina - she stops her and grabs her hand instead after which she keeps holding on to it, finally having someone in her life who brings her joy. The scene ends with Nina looking through the window, with the look of freedom and exhilaration on her face, while bright light hits her face and we get the sense the Black Swan hiding inside her is ready to emerge.
