Darren Aronofsky's 'mother!' Twists Lido Into Fever Dream - Venice

In one photo Jennifer can been seen looking up loving towards Darren as he receives an applause following the film's screening. The story of the flick is based on a young woman who goes through some awful experience with her husband after the arrival of a mysterious couple. Lawrence's co-star Michelle Pfeiffer stood in between them (giving epic side-eye), and Javier Bardem also was there.

The 27-year-old actress turned heads at the premiere of her new movie, Mother!

Lawrence stunned in a gothic-style black-and-pink dress with a plunging neckline, while Aronofsky made a style statement with an over-sized scarf and tinted glasses. He invites a pair of strangers into their home (four-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris and three-time Oscar nominee Michelle Pfeiffer), leading to a series of odd events that become ever more horrific. It's a baroque nightmare that's about nothing but itself.

Lawrence, 26, was drawn to Aronofsky, 48, during the film's production.

Jennifer Lawrence can't stop slaying the fashion game in Italy! I was surrounded by shrieks, yawns, laughter, smiles and a man who yelled "fuck you" at the screen as soon as the credits started. And I think that's pretty exciting for the current studio climate.

"... Aronofsky's film is ultimately concerned with the parasitic nature of the male artist; how he drains the lifeblood from all those around him in the name of creativity and ego fuel".

Speaking to Vulture, Aronofsky recently compared the movie to Black Swan and described Mother! as "a cruise missile shooting into a wall". Others have named it "breathtaking", with The Hollywood Reporter's early review declaring it "a very Rosemary's Baby-like intimate horror tale". Instead, Croll says, Aronofsky "sends his characters into a nightmarish dreamscape that grows and evolves, particularly in the bonkers last third, which builds in pitch, scope and sheer cinematic audacity, picking up overt religious and political resonance". See mother! if you have the stomach for it (a quick Google search reveals that it's intense).
