Portman is right.  An intense thriller set in the world of professional ballet, the film features equally intense love scenes between Portman and costar Mila Kunis.

Costing only $17 million to produce, Black Swan has already taken in $34 million at the box office.

Ballet fans, Portman fans, and – according to Natalie -- fans of lesbian sex scenes are all playing their part in driving those numbers.
