I’m sure there’s more to it but so far it looks like she is really going crazy in Mother!, a psychological horror written and directed by Darren Aronofsky.
“A young woman’s tranquil life with her husband at their remote country home is challenged by a mysterious couple who arrive and lodge with them.”
After watching this trailer I still have no idea what’s happening here, which could be seen as both a positive and a negative. On one end it’s nice to be surprised, to not know what you’re getting into. At the same time I’m not sure who (outside of fans of the director and cast) will want to see Mother! based on this trailer. Then again this is Darren Aronofsky, the same guy behind The Fountain, so of course Mother! looks nuts. Good, bad, whichever way you swing, it does at least seem intriguing enough (if you’re into mindfuckery) and the cast is top notch so I will probably give it a shot.
Black Swan helmer Darren Aronofsky directed and wrote Mother!. Starring in the film are Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, Kristen Wiig and more.
Mother! will premiere in September at the Toronto International Film Festival and the 74th Venice International Film Festival (where it will compete for the Golden Lion) and then come to the US starting September 15th.
