Now that “Burlesque” is a Thanksgiving leftover, there are still cinematic holiday treats for LGBT audiences. As usual Santa has more for gay men than lesbians (Hey, y’all had “The Kids Are All Right” and “Chloe” this year!), but that’s just because he’s gay.
“Black Swan” raised gay women’s anticipation with its trailer showing groping and a liplock between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, and Portman alone under the covers. Is she…?
Yes, she is, and yes, they are, but if context matters to you, “Black Swan” is not a lesbian movie. A paranoid thriller set in the ballet world (which makes it of interest to some gay men, although it’s even less gay than “Mao’s Last Dancer,” if that’s possible), it’s a mash-up of “The Red Shoes,” “The Turning Point” and “All about Eve,” but with a twist.
