OMG! Way darker than I realized it was going to be!
My mom is a dancer and I am pretty in tune with the ballet world, but never expected to be flinching and closing my eyes throughout this movie. 6 ladies got up and left within the first half hour.
I have to give credit to Natalie Portman, who not only danced the part beautifully, but also was a phenomenal actress. She deserves an Oscar for her performance.
