Jennifer Lawrence stars in director Darren Aronofsky’s mind-bogglingly strange film
Jennifer Lawrence stars in director Darren Aronofsky’s mind-bogglingly strange film.
He describes his movie as ‘a pretty intense ride’, but that’s something of an understatement. An eye-popping mix of marital drama, home-invasion thriller, surreal horror and bizarre state-of-the-world allegory, this film will leave you reeling and confused.
It’s best not to learn too much in advance about what happens, suffice to say that the action revolves around Lawrence’s young wife, devoted chatelaine of a grand and rambling mansion, and muse to her famous writer husband, played by Javier Bardem.
Things turn peculiar when uninvited guests Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer arrive at the remote house, and they proceed to get ever stranger as the film goes on.
Watch with an open mind – and cling on for the ride.
