The Golden-Globe nominated film takes viewers deep into a ballerina's descent into madness in a frightening portrait of psychosis that doctors say resonates realism. Nina Sayers, a fragile and repressed ballerina, played by Natalie Portman , strives for the lead in Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," a role that will require her to play both the gentle white and the seductive black swans. But in the process, she will have to shed her "sweet girl" persona and embrace her darker side to fully embrace the role and to please her demanding and sexually aggressive director. Her metamorphosis is so complete, that Nina eventually develops webbed feet, bird-like legs and sprouts feathers and wings to actually become the black swan. When people are psychotic, it's difficult, even as a therapist, to know what's real and what's not.

Mila Kunis defends Natalie Portman in 'Black Swan' controversy
She dropped 20 pounds off her already tiny frame. She practiced up to 16 hours a day. She could even win an Oscar.
The story follows Prince Siegfried as he attempts to find love and does so when he sees a white swan transform into Odette. Her transformation results from a curse put on her and others by an owl-like sorcerer named Rothbart. The curse can only be broken by Odette finding true love before Rothbart dies, but she ultimately sacrifices herself after Siegfried professes love for her black swan twin. Black Swan fades to white at the end as Nina is bleeding on stage after finishing her perfect performance, but there has been some debate about whether or not she actually died. Aronofsky's film supplies plenty of evidence to support that Nina is dead at the end.
