Aronofsky Says ‘Black Swan’ Is Just ‘The Wrestler’ With Chicks
Sunday, November 14 by

Darren Aronofsky would like you to see his new film, Black Swan, as a companion to his previous Oscar nominated The Wrestler. Maybe they’ll show as a double feature. Black Swan is about a ballet dancer (Natalie Portman) losing her grip with reality, and The Wrestler was about a steroid monster trying to make up with his daughter.
