NATALIE PORTMAN BRINGS ‘BLACK SWAN’ TO THE TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL

It was all eyes on Natalie Portman as she attended the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Black Swan at Roy Thomson Hall on Monday night (September 13).

Joined by co-stars Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel as well as director Darren Aronofsky and his wife Rachel Weisz, the 29-year-old actress was on hand to debut her new pyschological thriller to Canadian audiences.

To prepare for the role of Nina, Natalie (already tagged as Oscar bait) reportedly studied ballet for ten months.

She stars as an insecure, self-mutilating prima ballerina who becomes unravelled as she gets her big break—a chance to play both the White Swan and the Black Swan in an adventurous production of Swan Lake.

The movie has been called a ballet answer to The Wrestler. Mostly due to the fact that it comes from the same director.
