"'mother!' is something truly magnificent, the kind of visceral arthouse experience that comes along very rarely and spits you out into the daylight dazzled, queasy, delirious." The Playlist

Showing Times

A couple's (Javier Bardem + Jennifer Lawrence) marriage is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their isolated country home, disrupting their tranquil existence. Or are they really uninvited...?  Holding the thought that this is from Darren Aronofsky, director of Black Swan, the trailer begins to hint at the probable themes of love, devotion and sacrifice.  And the ultimate price that must be offered on the altar of Art!

Aronofsky says he woke one morning full of angst at the way the world is going, and MOTHER! is the result. This patchwork quilt of a mythical story was truly de profundis. "I was very sad and I had a lot of anguish and I wanted to express it. Filmmaking is such a hard journey. People are constantly saying ‘No’ to you. face all those ‘No’s,’ you have to be willing to really believe in something."
He concluded: “So I wanted to howl. And this was my howl. And some people are not going to want to listen to it. That’s cool.” 

We have been warned!
