Plot details have been scant on mother!, thew new Darren Aronofsky joint, but if you drew “weird-ass psycho-sexual thriller” in the office pool, the meat tray is yours.
The official synopsis gives us bupkis: “A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.” the couple is Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, the interlopers are Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer and, as you can see from the trailer, whatever weirdness they’re bringing with them, old Javier is well into it. Word around the campfire is that Aronofksy looked to Rosemary’s Baby for inspiration on this one, so expect things to get unsettling and, in all likelihood, bloody.
mother! is in Australian cinemas from September 14, 2017.
