Kunis and Portman do WHAT in BLACK SWAN?!?!?! (mini-spoilers, but they could never keep this secret!)

Natalie Portman ballerina flick which I was actually quite interested in before today (honestly, I was!) because of it's intriguing Polanski/Roeg/Shyamalan styled psychological theme and it's man behind the helm (The Wrestler'sDarren Aronofsky), has now become a must-see, first in line, opening night picture. My jaw has hit the floor, and seriously hasn't returned to it's natural place ever since I read Carson Reeves lead-in to his script review of Black Swan (written by Mark Heyman and dated March 25th 2009) at the the excellent Script Shadow...

Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis have sex. Yeah. You read that right. And not just nice sweet innocent sex either. We're talking ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.
Prediction: Black Swan will soon find a distributor after the internet reaction to this (currently, this is a full on Indie feature). Portman plays the lead, a New York City Ballet dancer who is is tormented by a rival (Kunis) who may or may not be a figment of her own imagination and who is vying for the same part in a production of Swan Lake. Reeves calls Black Swan "a very intriguing story with a quiet slow burn". The screenplay is a purposefully fat 131 pages in length and is said to be Sixth Sense style claustrophobic in terms of characterization and our lead's perception of reality. Reeves says...
In one scene, . It's cold and off-putting, and yet it's an important moment as it demonstrates just how high the stakes are in this seemingly innocent world. The script is steeped in darkness (surprise surprise) and makes you feel so uncomfortable at times that you can't read it without constantly resituating yourself.
Kunis and Portman will film the lesbian sex scene sometime in the fall when filming takes place in New York. Boy would I love to be on the set that day!
