The international trailer for Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis brings anticipation to the max. Not just a costume fest, but a costume fest with meaning, who could not be excited by this film?
No need for us to cover the plot again or recap the incredible costume design by Amy Westcott and Rodarte sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy. After Christmas we will publish an interview with director Darren Aronofsky discussing fractured identity and how costume can form part of a filmic narrative. Until then, for those in the United Kingdom who have not seen the film (we have, sorry!), this enticing trailer will just have to do.
Black Swan is released nationwide in the UK on 21st January.
