Di­rec­tor Dar­ren Aronof­sky wants to shake ‘mother!’ au­di­ences

The Philippine Star - - WORLD NEWS -

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Dar­ren Aronof­sky does not just want au­di­ences to watch his new film “mother!” He wants to shake them up and leave them think­ing about his genre-de­fy­ing, sur­real apoc­a­lyp­tic thriller.

“It’s very much a scary film. It’s very much a film that we want to shake au­di­ences,” Aronof­sky told Reuters.

“This is def­i­nitely a film that we want peo­ple to be talk­ing about and gig­gling about and an­a­lyz­ing and think­ing about for times to come,” he added.

With “mother!,” re­leased in US the­aters Fri­day, Aronof­sky chan­nels his fury with the state of the world into an al­le­gor­i­cal story that re­flects mankind’s self­ish re­la­tion­ship with na­ture, gen­der, pol­i­tics and re­li­gion.

Jennifer Lawrence plays Mother, a beau­ti­ful and naive young woman who is newly mar­ried to an older writer suf­fer­ing from writer’s block.

As the cou­ple set­tles in at the writer’s se­cluded home, two strangers turn up and kick off a se­ries of events that blurred re­al­ity and led to chaos.
