The film follows a woman (Jennifer Lawrence), married to a poet (Javier Bardem) with severe writer's block. While critics generally liked it, audiences mostly revolted, making mother! the rare movie to earn an F Cinemascore. Mother! then flopped when it opened to theaters in the U.S. last weekend, earning just $7 million-well short of its projections.
Nick Vadala of Philly.com wrote: "From the religious and political imagery to its remarks on celebrity culture and the nature of creativity, "Mother" is a film seemingly designed for any number of interpretations".
So, with all this explained and laid out, does it still make it a good movie or is it just overwrought bollocks? I love kids, but I love kids probably like any person who doesn't have them themselves, where I love them until I don't and then don't want them.
"It's an assault. It's really assaulting", Lawrence continued, adding that she had to listen to Christmas music to calm down after shooting. But the one thing I can't understand is how people can't acknowledge the filmmaking - there are three camera shots in the whole film: "over the shoulder, on her face, and her point of view". No one knew that King's horror movie would be a runaway hit and smash all-time box office records for a horror film.
Aside from talking about not feeling the urge of having kids, Lawrence revealed that when she was around 21 or 22 years old.
There's no question that Darren Aronofsky achieved just that with "mother!", which provokes, pummels, and is constantly entertaining, and is also now in cinemas across the country. "When I first read the script I thought it's too dark. That's exactly what I witnessed-even more so", Lawrence told People. If you've seen Mother! This time, I wanted to learn more about what the hell I just watched.
CinemaScore ratings can be indicative of a film's success, but aren't always.
Lawrence, whose roles usually focus on strong female leads, is thrust into portraying someone living to make her husband happy and asked to give and give until she can give no more.
