Main Plot

Nina is a talented but unstable ballerina on the verge of stardom. Pushed to the breaking point by her artistic director and a seductive rival, Nina's grip on reality slips, plunging her into a waking nightmare.


  • Natalie Portman's character in Black Swan is a ballerina who becomes consumed by her pursuit of perfection.
  • Mila Kunis' character, Lily, serves as a rival to Natalie Portman's character, Nina, and plays a seductive and manipulative role.
  • Vincent Cassel's character in Black Swan is a manipulative and seductive ballet director who pushes Natalie Portman's character to her limits.


In the climactic finale, Nina gives a breathtaking performance as the Black Swan, embodying both perfection and darkness. In a moment of triumph, she stabs herself, believing she has defeated her doppelgänger, Lily. As she dies, Nina sees herself as the White Swan and whispers, "I was perfect." The audience gives her a standing ovation, unaware of the tragedy unfolding. Nina's mother finds her lifeless body in her dressing room, while the camera pans to a portrait of a triumphant Nina, capturing the duality of her existence.
