I actually rented it from the library, so naturally it took about 3 months to come in. But it was worth the wait (and free no less)! ;)
This was definitely an intense film. Really beautifully shot, and Natalie Portman absolutely blew me away. I mean, this girl is amazing. And Mila Kunis was awesome too as her opposite! I was very impressed with everything about this film. It was dark, and strange and creepy - but really worth watching. Click here for a great review and interpretation of it!
You can really tell that these girls worked their asses off to portray experienced dancers too. And I didn't think that their bodies could get any tinier but they totally did. And muscular - WOW! I have heard that Natalie Portman was criticized because she used a body double in a couple of scenes. Gimme a BREAK people! This girl clearly worked unbelievably hard for this role, and so what if she used a double - she still did most of the work herself.
I still don't know how people can move their bodies the way that dancers do - or deal with the pain and stress of it all at the same time. Dancers are the most amazing (and most graceful) athletes on the planet!
