I had big expectations for this movie but was let down. Natalie Portman did an excellent job & any praise given to her was well deserved. I wish I could say the same for the movie. It had potential but just seemed to go off in different directions leaving you confused. Some instances you were just left to wonder what actually happened. The sexuality in the movie was just odd. The relationship between the mother & daughter strange. Portman's role comes off as someone that was already suffering from mental illness before she gained the role in the ballet. If it hadn't been for Portman I think this would have been a total flop.
