Trailer-Black Swan

The movie trailer I watched was Black Swan. The genre of this movie is suspense and drama. Nina (the main character) is a young adult who is struggling to be a ballerina but she lets herself get the best of her. She is controlled by her own dark side which ultimately leads to her own downfall. Within these two minutes the director, Darren Aronofsky, finds time to introduce a character who is obsessed with becoming the black swan. He does a great job at letting the audience know that she has an enemy within the movie which is a girl who is going to take her place but he doesn't give away all of the information besides the fact that she is losing it. She is so obsessed that she is becoming crazy, and that can be shown through shots with her eyes blood shot and her picking out thorns from her back.
