Jennifer Lawrence's latest film, "Mother!", is under fire by one critic who feels it is an attack on Christianity, but it remains to be seen if the backlash will result in another "Last Temptation of Christ" situation. "They are actually getting less and less as I get older, which is starting to worry me". And then he pulls out her heart (like I said, it gets pretty heavy-handed) and crushes it until it becomes another small, precious crystal. From films like "The Hunger Games" to the "X-Men" franchise and "American Hustle", she has done it all.
The film disturbed me enough that I immediately went home and read other film writers' interpretations of the movie-something I usually try not to do within the first few days of seeing a film so that I can gauge my own thoughts. She also revealed that she always wanted to work with the director. Only time will tell if mother! can yield a profit for Paramount but as a consolation prize, it's easily the most controversial film of the year. It may star Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer, but it's also going up against It, which had the biggest opening for a horror movie ever and continues to devour the competition. All signs point to IT hitting the fabled $300M-domestic mark before this is all said and done, and that's just.I mean.good lord.
Jennifer Lawrence starrer, an elevated psychological horror-thriller, supplants "The House at the End of the Street" to mark the lowest nationwide launch. "She's coming when it opens in Spain", said the actor.
"Not at all", she told E! She noted that the paycheck she got for "Mother!" was something she thinks she deserves.
As time goes on, Lawrence's character starts to become suspicious of the man and his odd family, and also of her own husband. "And I ended up growing and learning so much from that and I love that, I love if I can find something that really just scares the hell out of me".
