Black Swan (2010)

Black Swan follows the story of Nina (Academy Award winner Natalie Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre for the opening production of their new season, "Swan Lake," he narrows his choices to Nina and a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis). "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 becomes dangerously more in touch with her dark side -- a recklessness that threatens to destroy her. (R; 108 minutes)

All Good Things (2010)

Inspired by the most notorious missing person’s case in New York history, All Good Things is a love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s.

Robert Durst, scion of the wealthy Durst family, is suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie, who disappeared in 1982 and was never found.

The film stars Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella as the powerful patriarch, and captures the emotion and complexion of this real-life unsolved mystery. (R; 101 minutes)
