Summary of the Black Swan movie


Nina is a dancer on a ballet troupe.  Her mother is a former dancer.  Many are looking forward to the role of the Swan Queen in Nina’s ballet troupe, a promising moment in Princess Odette’s story of the Swan Queen.  Beth, who had until then been forcibly removed from the role, begins to select a new art director.  Nina does not understand the initial stage and Nina personally meets the art director and says that she wants the character.  There he tries to kiss her and there she bites him.

But then she gets mad when she sees that she has been chosen for the lead role.  She thinks to herself that there are enemies.  Meanwhile, a young woman named Lily takes him to a nightclub where he makes Nina drink drugs.  Then the two of them get together gay that night.  But the next day, Nina is surprised to see that Lily has been replaced by the Swan Queen.  She thinks Lily will kill her and take on the role.  Even on the day of the dance, she is mentally confused that she will lose her character. 

When one element of the dance is over, she sees Lily getting ready for the next scene and coming to kill her.  She kills Lily before that and hides in the bathroom.  But when she finishes dancing, she sees that there is no evidence that such a thing happened in the bathroom.  But the mirror is broken.  When she looks, she sees that he has stabbed himself.

End of Story

She joins the final scene with that injury.  The scene ends with her falling from a height.  She falls into a pile of mattresses on the bottom.  Everyone sees her bleeding from the wound after that fall.  When everyone sees her, she happily says that she feels perfect.
