Black Swan (2010) 

A repressed ballet dancer leads a sheltered life, devoted entirely to her art. She pursues the lead role in a production of Swan Lake, but the director convinces her she will only be capable of dancing the part if she embraces her darker impulses. This leads her into a destructive relationship with a rival that threatens her sanity. Drama, starring an Oscar-winning Natalie Portman. With Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel and Winona Ryder
Sky Cinema Superheroes HD (Virgin 402)
