Last night me and my friends went to see 'The Black Swan.' It was BRILLIANT. The story was so unexpected as we all went thinking it would be a pretty ballerina film....it's really really not. Her journey into madness was so well acted and very, very chilling. However it was a massive trigger. It has been described by critics as "eating disorder porn" and I'm inclined to agree. I understand that it's realistic to the ballet world but oh my god those girls are thin. I felt myself feeling fatter as the film went on. For the role Natalie Portman had to loose 20lbs, the director eventually told her she was looking too sick and had to stop loosing weight. I would warn those with eating disorders or those recovering to treat this film with caution.
Afterwards we went out for a meal and 2 out of the 3 of us ended up getting salad. After a film like that I couldn't deal with anything else.
Right I'm off to the gym, will update properly in a few days.
