Just watched the movie Black Swan directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Natalie Portman as the lead character.  It’s quite well done but it’s rated R for a reason. Mildly intense in places. Mormons and Baptists will want to select “Benji Does Dollywood” or some other wholesome meditation instead.

I have to say that Portman played the transformation of the White Swan into the Black Swan both on and off stage in a most compelling way. The actual Black Swan scene near the end is brief but spellbinding.
