Heartwarming: Black Swan
  • "He picked me, mommy."
  • Tomas' genuine admiration of Nina after her performance is complete—and his genuine concern when he sees that she's injured.
  • Despite being film powered by horrific implications left and right, Lily's Cool Big Sis moments are lovely and just what the increasingly fragile Nina needs. Outside of Nina's imagination shes a wonderfully sweet person and her praise of Nina's final performance at the end is definitely refreshing after something so terrifying (but very, very badass). It's also nice to finally see her true character by the end; she's ultimately just a friendly girl who wants to see Nina do well and her death scene is all a hallucination.
  • Play ABBA's "Nina, Pretty Ballerina" over some scenes and it becomes... saner. The lyrics, not to mention the title, are rather wholly appropriate.
