Coming to the Roku Channel this month is the 2010 film “Black Swan,” a psychological thriller about two women competing for starring roles in the NYC Ballet’s production of “Swan Lake.” Natalie Portman won an Oscar for her portrayal of a tortured dancer who descends into madness. Co-starring Mila Kunis, the film was directed by Darren Aronofsky. Portman and Kunis trained in ballet for several months before filming began.

Ricatto d’amore

June 1, 2009

A New York le aspirazioni di un ragazzo che sogna un futuro nell’editoria, magari anche da scrittore, si infrangono contro le infinite vessazioni del suo capo, la classica donna tutto lavoro e niente divertimento. Il giorno in cui però il capo rischia di essere deportato nel natio Canada per problemi di visto si presenta l’occasione per un matrimonio di interesse, operazione di certo rischiosa ma potenzialmente foriera della sospirata promozione. L’unico problema sarà tenere in piedi la rappresentazione senza che nessuno, nemmeno l’immigrazione, se ne accorga.
