Darren Aronofsky doesn't make fluffy movies, and has only had one genuine misfire (2014's Noah). His best films are unforgiving explorations of artistic ambition (Black Swan), addiction (Requiem for a Dream) or mortality (The Wrestler), admittedly big themes. But this bonkers family horror movie perhaps has more in common with his ambitious existential sci-fi epic The Fountain: this is a resolutely symbolic movie that's impossible to take literally. And yet it still freaks us out.
It's set in a huge isolated house, which a young woman (Jennifer Lawrence) has been restoring for her older poet husband (Javier Bardem) after it burned down. Just as it's beginning to look good, and she starts thinking about starting a family, the husband invites a stranger (Ed Harris) to stay, and he encroaches on their hospitality by inviting his pushy wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their bickering sons (real-life brothers Domhnall and Brian Gleeson). After causing some chaos, they finally leave, the wife falls pregnant and the husband's writers' block finally breaks. But his new book inspires so much adulation from his fans that their happiness is in jeopardy.

Lawrence was asked about 'Passengers' "creepy" plot.
Jennifer Lawrence has responded to the controversy that greeted her movie Passengers late last year, revealing she’s “disappointed” in herself for not spotting the flaws in the script.
The 26 year old actress starred opposite Chris Pratt in the sci-fi romance Passengers, which was met with scepticism and criticism from movie-goers. As well as underperforming at the box office when it was released in December 2016, many people described the plot as “creepy”, in which Pratt’s character, accidentally waking up from an intergalactic deep sleep 90 years from his destination, wakes up Lawrence’s character in order have some company – effectively killing her in the process.
Lawrence was grilled about the movie in a new interview, and while she defended the project and her part in it, she said that she wished in retrospect she had looked into it more closely before participating.
Lawrence was just one of more than 100 stars who fell victim to the notorious 'celebgate' hacking incident back in 2014.
Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out about the privacy hack she suffered nearly three years ago when nude photos of her went viral, saying that she was “blindsided” and the fear of the same thing happening again is always there.
The 26 year old Hollywood megastar told Vogue for its 125th anniversary in a new interview about the 2014 hacking, saying: “I think people saw it for what it was, which was a sex crime, but that feeling, I haven't been able to get rid of it.”
Edward Majerczyk of Chicago was arrested after police investigated the 2014 ‘celebgate’ affair and pleaded guilty in July last year of stealing images of more than 100 celebs, including Lawrence.
