Natalie Portman's film Black Swan drew 40 complaints in all

There were 40 complaints about the film which starred Natalie Portman as a ballet dancer and Vincent Cassel as her director.

BBFC Director David Cooke said some of the complaints were about a lesbian sex scene, but others were sparked by "confounded expectations" about the film's dark subject matter which surprised some viewers who thought they were going to see a film about dance.

The most complained about film of the last 10 years was Batman: The Dark Knight.

There were more than 300 complaints about the 2008 film which starred Christian Bale as the masked superhero and Heath Ledger as The Joker.
