Lucky folks in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Chicago need only visit iwasperfect.com to RSVP for one of the special screenings. The theatres where the screenings will be held are listed below. Please note that reservations on a first-come/first-served basis.

Official Synopsis:
Set in the world of New York City ballet, BLACK SWAN stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company (Mila Kunis). A Fox Searchlight Pictures release by visionary director Darren Aronofsky (THE WRESTLER), BLACK SWAN takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect. The script was written by Mark Heyman and Andres Heinz and John McLaughlin.

BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother, Erica (Barbara Hershey), who zealously supports her daughter's professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly, but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

If you don't happen to live in or near one of these four cities, don't feel bad. Black Swan comes out on Blu-ray and DVD March 29th so you and your friends can have your own interactive experience in the comfort of your own homes!

Predictable and overrated. Black Swan is no more interesting or layered than The Wrestler was. It's a generic story fused with the 'high concept' world of ballet.

I'm just glad good 'ol Darren isn't the one who's getting his grubby, pretentious mitts on RoboCop.
