Natalie Portman, as Nina in Black Swan. Visually stunning, a compelling pace, & fascinating to watch. Ballet looks like a painful art! Winona Ryder's character seemed slightly superfluous, I would have liked to see her more as a troubled but somewhat dignified diva, slowly showing cracks around the edges. Mila Kunis & Vincent Cassel were inspired casting (even their looks matched the aesthetics - Mila with her dark features mirrored Natalie, & Vincent with his poised hauteur).
