Release Date: 3 December 2010

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.

Synopsis:

Competition for the lead role in a ballet production of Swan Lake is so fierce that Nina (Natalie Portman) fears she may be losing her mind trying to get the part. Adding to the pressure is the company’s artistic director (Vincent Cassel), her mother’s (Winona Ryder) expectations and a flirtatious rival (Mila Kunis).
