Director/Writer: Darren Aronofsky
Stars: Jennifer Lawrence (mother), Javier Bardem (Him), Ed Harris (man), Michelle Pfeiffer (woman), the Gleeson brothers & Kristen Wiig?!
An unnamed woman (Jennifer Lawrence) lives in a secluded farmhouse with her husband, a famous poet who is struggling with writer’s block. While the man tries to write, the woman keeps herself busy by renovating the house, which had previously been almost completely destroyed by a fire. Things aren’t perfect (dude is pretty moody, emotionally unavailable, etc.), but she seems to be pretty content.
Everything changes when a guy shows up at their door, claiming he thought the place was a B&B. It’s Ed Harris, & he’s soon followed by his wife, Michelle Pfeiffer, then more & more people. Soon, both JLaw & the farmhouse (& the viewer!) begin to crumble under the weight of all the uninvited guests.
Next up, another entry into the Texas Chainsaw franchise. But wait! This one's helmed by the duo who brought you the ultra gory french extremity flick Inside. See, now we've got your attention. This one's available online now, so check it out, then check back here in a couple of weeks to see what we thought of it. Toodles!
