Right, first things first, watch this thing. If you know nothing, the 10-second set up is that Natalie Portman plays a ballerina with the New York City Ballet who finally gets her shot at the prime role in “Swan Lake,” only to have newcomer Mila Kunis rival her.
Holy fucking shit, right? I am freaked out, I am turned on, I am buying a ticket.
Now much has been made of the kiss (and sex scene), Natalie and Mila have in the film. Someone who read an early script called it “hungry aggressive angry sex.” Natalie called it “extreme.” Mila called it “not smut.” I was a little wary of it before (especially because it is rumored to be ecstasy induced), but now that I’ve seen the kiss I am all aboard the hate sex train.
Speaking of sex, what exactly is happening here? OK, I know what’s happening here. But, still, dayum.
And then we have Mila letting her fingers do the walking. I like this girl already.
If nothing else, you have to be impressed by Natalie’s many faces of horror. I mean, she even pulls an Edvard Munch.
Everything is most definitely not beautiful at the ballet.
