Mother! chuckler: J-Law’s having a laugh at shock over new release
HORROR shocker Mother! has divided opinion among critics — but star Jennifer Lawrence reckons she finds the whole polarised reaction thing a bit of a giggle.
The film has received praise from some critics, but many others found sitting through its two-hour run time a gruelling experience.
In the film, the 27-year-old Hunger Games star Lawrrence plays a wife whose intentions to create a dream home are thwarted when a mysterious couple (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer) arrive to lodge with she and her husband (Javier Bardem).
And, unsurprisingly, things then go pear-shaped in the Darren Aronofsky-directed startle-fest.
The Oscar winner said: ‘We knew it was going to be polarising, it’s just hilarious to see the people who love it, love it, and they think it’s amazing and they get it and then the people who don’t like it, absolutely despise it — there’s no in between.’
Mother! is out now in UK cinemas.
