Darren Aronofsky Reveals True Meaning of His Movie 'mother!'

The movie mother! was one of the most polarizing films in recent memory and the director Darren Aronofsky is opening up to reveal the meaning of the movie.

“I wanted to make a film about Mother Earth and how we treat Mother Earth,” Darren said during a conference at SXSW. “The way I see we treat Mother Earth is incredibly disrespectful. We pillage her, we rape her, we call her dirt.”

Jennifer Lawrence played a pregnant woman who was put through a series of traumatizing events while living in a secluded farmhouse with her husband, a poet played by Javier Bardem.

“That’s why Jennifer played the character the way she did,” he added. “There’s a lot of emotion.”

Darren also confirmed that Javier‘s character represented God.

“I looked at the Bible and how the Old Testament God is painted,” he said (via Variety). “When you think about that God, if you don’t pray to him, he kills you. What type of character does that? For me, it was about interpreting that to human emotion.”
