Starring Academy Award Winner Natalie Portman

Black Swan - BUFF Film screening

Weston Studio

A provocative psychological thriller that explores the pressures of stardom.

The University of Bath’s Be Well Week is all about taking care of yourself – including your mental health. As part of Be Well Week’s programme, we are hosting a FREE screening of Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-winning psychological thriller, Black Swan.

Black Swan is a fascinating exploration of the pressures of achievement. Portman gives the performances of a lifetime as Nina, a stunningly talented but dangerously unstable ballerina on the verge of stardom. Pushed to breaking point by her driven artistic director and the threat posed by a seductive rival dancer, Ninas tenuous grip on reality starts to slip away. As the pressure builds, Nina’s all-consuming obsessions spin out of control, plunging her into a waking nightmare that will threaten not only her sanity, but her life.
