The Dali & Beyond Film Series features an eclectic selection of films – both familiar and fantastic – with monthly themes ranging from horror, experimental and psychological to kid-friendly and world cinema. Kicking off our new exhibition, Dali and Schiaparelli, October’s movie theme is “Haute Couture Horror,” featuring frightful films with extraordinary costume design.
New York City ballet dancer Nina enters into an intense battle of wills with a talented and ambitious new arrival, Lily, who seems intent on edging her out of the spotlight in this supernatural-flavored psychological thriller. Nina covets the role of the Swan Queen in a production of Swan Lake by acclaimed theater director Thomas Leroy. The harder Nina works to win the part, however, the more overwhelmed she becomes by her suspicions that talented newcomer Lily is intent on stealing it away from her. As the production draws near and Nina struggles to master the duel roles of the White Swan and the Black Swan, she grows increasingly unstable to the point where she finds it difficult to distinguish fantasy from reality. Though her burgeoning friendship with the unconventional Lily helps Nina to jettison her perfectionist instincts and find her footing as the Black Swan, the closer she gets to perfecting the role, the further her sanity erodes until she begins to experience a bizarre and profound transformation.
Amy Westcott is credited as the costume designer and received several award nominations. At the time of the film’s release, a controversy broke out concerning Westcott’s collaboration with Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the duo behind the fashion label Rodarte. It’s been reported that the sisters designed 40 ballet costumes for the film, and did not receive proper credit for their contribution. Westcott claims that the Mulleavys exaggerated their contribution. Controversy aside, the costumes are traditional but with added flair, which help tell the story of metamorphosis, polarity and the descent into madness.
