A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary?Written by
There is a recurring theme of yellow fluids through the film. Mother repeatedly drinks an unnamed yellow medicine. She paints the walls with yellow paint. Woman makes a big fuss about her lemonade, and leaves yellow lemons lying around the kitchen. And there are several scenes evoking urine, with characters either using the toilet or wetting themselves. See more »
When the Michelle Pfeiffer's character burns her hand on the skillet, her husband tells "Mother" to get some ice. As a medical doctor (he said earlier that he is a surgeon) he would know that applying ice to a burn can further damage the tissue. It would have been better to run her hand under cold water.

Actually this movie isnt my favorite movie but i wanted to talk about it because I couldn't choose my fav. Anyway,Mother is a American psychological horror? film. jennifer lawrence and Javier Bardem are starring.The plot follows a young woman whose tranquil life with her husband at their country home is disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious couple. The main place is lead characters's house.Mother was directed by Darren Aranofsky. most of the people who watched the film did not understand the message. The movie is satire to religion to god, every scene, every detail is a hidden symbolic passage. example: In one scene a man is in the bathroom and his back appears bruised, it means that he is Adam and his back is injured because God took his rib to make Eve. What I understood from the film is that it shows that God would be a selfish being that while man destroys the world and nature he only cares about being worshiped. You need to watch the movie and at the same time associate that part of the bible it is referring to, and which bible character each actor represents so you can see the art behind the scenes.😋
