March 28th 1986. Winona’s first movie, Lucas, hit the movie theaters. Winona was Rina, best friend of the outsider Lucas, and, well, you already knows that…
Twenty-five years later, Black Swan hits DVD and Blu-Ray. Winona’s performance as Beth, the retiring prima ballerina, was so powerful that Noni love seems to be everywhere all over again.
These are only two moments of an extensive and brilliant career. Let us know, in the comments, which Winona’s performance are your favorite.

The trailer for one of the most anticipated films of the year is finally here. Darren Aronofsky has made some of the best films of the previous decade with Requiem For a Dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler. Kicking off this new decade with a supernatural ballerina thriller, Black Swan, he looks to continue his greatness.
The film stars Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder. Check it out trailer:
Synopsis: BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughterâ€™s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. 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 begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
A host of celebs are stepping out to celebrate the career of Oscar-winning director Ron Howard.

“The Chicago International Film Festival’s Summer Gala is the most anticipated event of the year, with all proceeds to benefit the year-round programs of Cinema/Chicago,” said managing director Vivian Teng. “We’re thrilled to have Ron Howard as this year’s honoree.”
